Elected MP: depriving Rashkin of immunity was dictated by a public request the lower house of parliament to deprive the deputy from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Valery Rashkin of immunity is dictated by the demand of society for openness and justice. He spoke about this in an interview with Gazeta.Ru.
The offenses that are currently being discussed have nothing to do with Rashkin's deputy activities, Vyborny noted. “Today a powerful demand of our society for openness and justice has been formed. We discussed a lot that the law should be the same for everyone, there should be no untouchables and the institution of inevitability of punishment should work like a clock, “he stressed.
Vyborny added that the further fate of Rashkin will depend on the conclusion of the investigation, to which it will come, as well as from the position of the Prosecutor General's Office.
On November 25, State Duma deputies voted to deprive the immunity of the deputy from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Valery Rashkin, suspected of illegal hunting for moose.
In October 2021 the police stopped the deputy's car in the Saratov region, in the trunk of which they found a dead elk. Rashkin later confessed to killing the animal.
