An official of the Ministry of industry and trade Denis Pak, held as the victim in the case of the players Alexander Kokorin and Pavel Mamaev, was pleased with the court’s decision. About it the lawyer of the Pack Natalya shatikhina reported owned by Grigory Berezkin publication RBC.
“We believe that it is fair enough from both a legal and a moral point of view. From the beginning, we talked about the fact that the punishment, a severe punishment was not our goal,” said Shatikhina.
In her opinion, to talk about football as a demonstration is not quite true, as none of the victims that morning did not recognise the attackers athletes. The lawyer stressed that it is important to give a signal to society about the unacceptability of such behavior.
May 8, Presnensky court of Moscow has sentenced Alexander Kokorin to a year and six months, and Pavel Mamayev to a year and five months of imprisonment in a General regime colony. Two other defendants in the case, the younger brother Kirill Kokorin and Alexander Protasowicki also received real time — 1.5 years and one year and five months of imprisonment in a General regime colony, respectively. In addition, according to the court, it is necessary to destroy a wooden chair — the murder weapon in the case of players.
Kokorin and Mamaev convicted on three criminal cases instituted under article “Beating” and “Hooliganism”. They, along with Kokorin, Jr., and their friends Protasowicki are in jail since October 11, 2018.
According to investigators, the defendants became participants of fights in the center of Moscow. First, the players attacked the driver of TV presenter Olga Ushakova, then beat the Pack and the Director General of FSUE “NAMI” Sergey Gaisin.
