Kokorin reveals plans for New Year's Eve
The football player will go to bed.
The Zenit attacker placed in custody for two fights in Moscow will go to bed early on New Year's Eve because of the prison regime in Butyrka, the Moscow News Agency reports.
Kokorin wrote a letter to the agency, in which he said that a New Year party was prohibited in the detention center. He noted that he did not know whether he would be given the opportunity to wish a happy New Year to his family but he was going to write a letter to them.
"I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year, wish that you could all get together with your families at the table," wrote the football player.
Earlier, the Tverskoy District Court of Moscow extended the detention period of Kokorin, his brother Kirill, and the midfielder of FC Krasnodar, Pavel Mamaev, until February 8.
Kokorin and Mamaev are accused of hooliganism (Art. 213) and battery (Art. 116 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). On the morning of October 8, they beat the driver of a Channel One presenter at the Pekin Hotel in the heart of Moscow, and then staged a fight with Denis Pak, a Department Head at the Trade Ministry, and NAMI CEO Sergei Gaysin in a cafe nearby.
