Conclusions on the fact of illegal hunting, in which the State Duma deputy from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Valery Rashkin may be involved, must be made by law enforcement officers and specialized departments. This was announced on Friday, October 29, by the official representative of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov.
“We’ve seen media reports. Probably, law enforcement agencies and environmental agencies should come to appropriate conclusions, “Peskov said, when asked whether Rashkin should resign as a State Duma deputy in case of confirmation of information about the illegal shooting of an animal.
Earlier that day, the Committee for Hunting and Fisheries of the Saratov Region filed a complaint with the police against Valery Rashkin. According to Izvestia’s source, it was he who was driving the car. Also, a video appeared on the Web, which captured the process of inspecting a car and drawing up a protocol.
Later, the Ministry of Internal Affairs reported that an illegal hunting case was opened in the Saratov region after a man’s carcass of an elk, an ax and two knives were found in a man’s car. According to the man who drove the car, he and a friend noticed the carcass of the wounded animal, after which they decided to butcher it.
The driver refused to undergo a medical examination for alcohol intoxication.
