According to the TV channel 360, the trainer was returning from the bar, from where an anonymous call was made to the police about his intention to get behind the wheel drunk.

Dmitry Alenichev became the head coach of the Yenisei FC in 2017.

After 13 rounds in the Russian Premier League, Yenisei was at the end of the standings, having 6 points in assets.
Every big Russian city has ‘untouchable' people who are beyond the reach of the law enforcement authorities – generals, judges, mayors, etc. Despite overwhelming evidence sufficient to prosecute them, such persons cannot be busted without authorization from the federal center. There is also another type of corrupt officials: their deeds are well-known – but these people are so generous, hospitable, and understanding that no one is willing to arrest them.
