Communist Valery Rashkin lost his post as first secretary of the Moscow city party committee, he was transferred to the post of adviser to the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, TASS reports with reference on the head of the press service of the party Alexander Yushchenko. Yushchenko's information was confirmed by RBC.
His duties in the city committee will be performed by Moscow City Duma deputy Nikolai Zubrilin.
Zubrilin told RBC that Rashkin remains a “party comrade” who can always be consulted. “Valery Fedorovich Rashkin and I worked for many years. Despite his transfer to a high party position in the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, he remains our party comrade, to whom we can always turn for good advice, — he said.
The Moscow City Duma deputy added that he would now oversee the municipal campaign in Moscow together with the leadership of the Moscow city committee and activists in the districts.
Zubrilin also noted that the decisions of the party bodies must “strictly” be fulfilled. “Each secretary of the CPRF MGK has its own functional duties, the first secretary, respectively, has more of them, as well as more responsibility. Therefore, we are moving on, ahead of the elections of deputies of LSG, appeals of residents, protection of the interests of Muscovites, all this requires daily attention and work, — said Zubrilin.

The state prosecution asked the court to give Rashkin 3.5 years probation, the defense insisted on stopping the criminal prosecution and imposing a fine. Anastasia Udaltsova received Rashkin's mandate.

The ex-deputy was detained in October last year in a forest in the Saratov region. In the trunk of his car, they found a butchered carcass of an elk, and at the place of butchering the animal, employees of the hunting supervision found a gun with cartridges and a hunting ticket in the name of Rashkin. The communist did not have permission to shoot.
At first, Rashkin said that he found the carcass of an elk when he was walking with his comrades, and decided to take it to the police. However, later the ex-deputy admitted that his friends offered him to go hunting and assured him that he had the necessary permits. As a result, he went hunting alone and shot the animal, thinking it was a wild boar. When Rashkin approached the corpse, he realized that it was a moose.
