The State Duma and the Federation Council may face large-scale purges against the backdrop of Senator Rauf Arashukov’s high-profile case. It was offered by a member of the lower house of parliament from the Communist Party, Valery Rashkin.

“We have gangsters, fraudsters, and murderers in power because of the rotten electoral system and the management vertical, as well as total corruption,” he noted. 

According to him, such people must be exposed, because they do not represent the people, but govern the way they live. 

“Sometimes they even speak Russian poorly, yet, for some reason, this does not prevent them from voting in favor of multi-page antisocial laws,” Rashkin stressed. 

He added that Russians now had the right to pass a no-confidence motion against the government due to the fact that it did not keep up with a systemic political crisis, seeing that criminals were members of state bodies. 

“Siloviki’s charade will not convince citizens that the state is successfully fighting corruption,” the deputy believed. The only way out is to “comb” the parliament and find “other Arashukovs.” 

In addition, Rashkin believes that all those who have dual citizenship or residence permits and real estate in other countries must waive their mandates. 

“All those living out of a suitcase do not belong in power. A backup country of residence is a threat to national security. We need to nationalize the elite,” he added. 

As previously reported by The CrimeRussia, Rashkin had already drawn the attention of the Prosecutor General's Office to Arashukov in October last year, but the supervisory agency ignored his issue, giving a formal response. 

The 32-year-old Karachay-Cherkessia Senator Rauf Arashukov was detained at a meeting of the Federation Council on January 30. He is charged with Participation in a Criminal Community (part 3 of Art. 210), Murder of Two or More Persons (part 2 of Art. 105), and Pressure on a Witness (part 4 of Art. 309).
