Leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Zyuganov: Rashkin went through the second stage of the operation, which was forced to postpone hospitalization of State Duma deputy Valery Rashkin. He is quoted by Gazeta.Ru.
“Let's figure it out. He had an operation, this is the second stage of the operation, in connection with this trial he had to postpone, “Zyuganov told the details.
Rashkin's hospitalization became known earlier on November 30. It was clarified that the deputy underwent an operation due to an eye disease aggravated by nerves.
On November 25, State Duma deputies voted to deprive Rashkin of immunity, suspected of illegal elk hunting. Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Security and Anti-Corruption Anatoly Vyborny explained that the decision of the lower house of parliament was dictated by the public's request for openness and fairness.
In October 2021, police stopped the politician's car in the Saratov region, in the trunk of which they found a dead elk. Rashkin later confessed to killing the animal.
