In the late 1970s, his father was appointed as an inspector of the Polish Gdansk Shipyard, where Soviet ships were built, thus, in the first years of schooling, Porechenkov had to leave Leningrad and move, along with the family, to the Polish People's Republic.

After graduating from the school in 1986, he went to the Estonian SSR, where he entered the Tallinn Higher Military-Political Construction College to earn a political officer degree.

When he returned home from Estonia, he worked in a picture framing studio, and attended Armen Dzhigarkhanyan's class in the Gerasimov Institute of Cinematography (VGIK), which he had not graduated from. In 1991 he entered the Leningrad State Institute of Theatre, Music and Cinematography (LGITMiK), Veniamin Filshtinsky's class, and graduated in 1996.
