United Russia deputy loses seat for running kid down
A criminal case has been opened against Ivan Kits.
The Stavropol presidium of the United Russia political council suspended party membership of Deputy Kits of the Neftekumsk city district, who was charged with a fatal accident, said the press service of the party.
As the investigation established, Kitz’s Toyota Land Cruiser Prado hit and killed an 8-year-old boy, who was crossing the road on December 13 in the village of Achikulak. The child suffered a brain injury and died, the ICR notes.
"Kits’ membership in the party has been suspended," the press service said.
They noted that the suspending procedure is provided for by the charter if a deputy is prosecuted.
