MOSCOW, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. Deputy of Moscow Regional Duma Vyacheslav Gubin, against whom a criminal case was opened under two criminal articles, is expelled from the faction of Russian ruling party United Russia, leader of the faction Ivan Zhukov told Itar-Tass on Thursday. In his words, the parliamentary faction has taken the unanimous decision to this effect at its meeting on Thursday.
“The status of deputy of the regional legislature lays special responsibility on a person, because he represents interests of tens of thousands of people. It is absolutely impermissible, moreover for a deputy, to threaten the life of a person, moreover beat him. It was decided at the faction meeting to expel Vyacheslav Gubin from the faction,” Zhukov said. “This is not a loss for us. My personal opinion is that the deputy had always had an opinion that differed from that of the faction, refused to fulfil its decisions and set himself above others,” he added.
“We will assist the investigation in every possible way and do not doubt a fair court verdict. If a guilty verdict is pronounced and it enters in legal force, Gubin will be stripped of deputy mandate that is stipulated in the law of Moscow Region,” Zhukov said.
On Wednesday, the Moscow regional investigation department of the Russian Investigative Committee opened a criminal case against deputy of Moscow Regional Duma Vyacheslav Gubin for deliberate damage to other people’s property and threat of murder.
