According to the investigation, during November and December 2016, the accused individuals had been purchasing an alcohol-containing product featuring methanol, in the city of Irkutsk, for their financial benefit. At home, they had been rendering the product into an alcohol-containing liquid and had been selling it as Boyaryshnik cosmetic product to an unidentified circle of people in Irkutsk while presenting it as an alcohol drink.
