"Prosecutor will ask for 5 years": Kokorin's lawyer tells what he expects from court

The proceedings in the case of debauchery caused by the athletes are taking place in Moscow.

A representative of Alexander Kokorin's brother has spoken about his predictions about the proceedings in the Kokorin and Mamaev case. According to him, he has no doubt that the prosecutor will ask for 5 years of real imprisonment for the defendants. However, at the same time, the lawyer believes that the case has begun to fall apart, since violations had been made during the collection of evidence and questioning of witnesses.

Zenit forward Kokorin and foremr Krasnodar footballer Mamaev previously offered their own version of events to the court. They said that they did not want to cause the debauchery, however, the victims themselves provoked the athletes, insulting them with obscene words.

Footballers Alexander Kokorin and Pavel Mamaev, as well as Kokorin's younger brother Kirill and their common friend Aleksandr Protasovitsky were arrested on charges of beating Head of a Ministry of Industry and Trade department Denis Pak and the driver of Channel One TV host Olga Ushakova, Vitaly Solovchuk, in October 2018. In early April, the duration of their stay in the pre-trial detention center was extended until September 25.
