Kirill Kokorin accused driver Solovchuk of assault
The accused said that the victim attacked first.
Kirill, the younger brother of football player Alexander Kokorin, whose custody term was extended until February 8, wrote a statement against one of the victims, Vitaly Solovchuk, the driver for the Pervy Kanal TV channel. According to the young man’s lawyer Vyacheslav Barik, the CCTV recording shows clearly that Solovchuk was the first to hit.
“We have submitted a statement to initiate a case of assault (of Kirill Kokorin - Ed.). We do not know yet whether the decision has been made or not,” Sports.ru quotes the lawyer.
It is to be recalled that Kirill and Alexander Kokorin, Pavel Mamaev and Alexander Protasovitsky are accused of hooliganism and assault after a fight with the Trade Ministry employee Denis Pak, CEO of NAMI Sergei Gaysin and driver Vitaly Solovchuk. On December 5, the court extended the defendants’ custody until February 8.
Denis Konstantinov has been warned that criminal case into high treason might be initiated against him. He states he was beaten and demanded to confess of his cooperation with foreign intelligence services.
