Dyuzhev questions objectivity of police investigating case of Kokorin and Mamayev
According to the actor, the investigation plays to popular effect.
Movie actor Dmitry Dyuzhev stood up for football players Alexander Kokorin and Pavel Mamaev, accusing the investigation of bias and playing for popular effect. Dyuzhev compared the case with the trial of the Soviet Torpedo FC football player Eduard Streltsov, who was sentenced to five years in prison.
“The cause of such harsh and undeserved punishment is the [current] political situation. At that moment, it was very beneficial to show the public that the police power is so strong and impartial that even a well-known athlete, the idol of young people can be punished and sent to a [penal] colony. We are facing a similar situation now,” Dyuzhev wrote on his Instagram page.
In the 2000s, Western Europe had welcomed refugees from Chechnya. In 2018, it has finally realized the criminal potential of dozens of thousands of mountain dwellers who had left their native land because of reprisals and economic disorder. Many of those who had fought against the Russian army in the first and second Chechen wars and their grown-up children skilled in weapons and practicing martial arts have united into street gangs. The CrimeRussia was figuring out why the Germans and Austrians don’t feel themselves comfortable in their countries anymore.
