As it was reported by the press service of the CPRF regional committee, on Wednesday, September 6, he took part in a rally in Serdobsk and then, held a reception of citizens.

Valery Rashkin promised to submit deputy requests regarding a number of issues.

In addition, the deputy visited the Bekovsky area, where he had spent his childhood.

"Only 42 people are left in the village that used to be very big. It is a fault of our government. It has been constantly repeated that our agriculture is developing but today I saw with my own eyes how 'true' it is. In another settlement the only people who is left is a family of four people," the State Duma deputy stated with a pity.

He also visited graves of his father and brother, talked to fellow villagers and former classmates.
