Kokorin's lawyer looking for eyewitnesses
Tatyana Stukalova, Kokorin's defense lawyer, asked anyone willing to give testimony to contact her.
Tatyana Stukalova representing Zenit's forward Alexander Kokorin, has made a post on Instagram asking everyone who had witnessed the fight of her client and Pavel Mamaev to contact her.
She reminded that the incidents occurred on October 8 at about 7 am on 2nd Brestskaya Street and at about 9 am in a cafe on Bolshaya Nikitskaya Street.
The players Mamaev and Kokorin were detained as part of the investigation into two hooliganism cases. First, the athletes beat the driver of a Channel One host, and then a Trade Ministry official, Denis Pak.
In addition, police arrested Kokorin’s brother Kirill and amateur football league player from the Moscow region, Alexander Protasovitsky, who also took part in the brawls.

The official car of former Deputy Head of Roskomnadzor and now Deputy Head of the Department of Project Activities of the Government of the Russian Federation, Maksim Ksenzov, tried to ram two foreign cars, after which an unknown person, who jumped out of the third car, crashed the car mirrors and beat up his driver.
The owner of the Norebo Group, Vitaly Orlov, seems to be having more problems every day. No sooner had he been recognized as Russia’s richest fishing industrialist with a net worth of over $1 billion that he got bombarded with lawsuits and criminal cases. So far, they have only been coming from his former business partner. However, taking into account all the new facts that indicate some opaque business practices at best, the authorities may take some issues with the billionaire as well, since there have been discrepancies in the figures of the fish supplied abroad, the prices, and the final profit, which may indicate attempted tax avoidance.
Crimea faces storm again. Sergey Aksenov may lose his post. Perhaps, he decided to play it safe and arrange a public scandal – his appointee to the Head of the Simferopol administration post. It is believed that Igor Lukashev and his seven deputies were allegedly dismissed due to the significant number of complaints from citizens about the traffic collapse, the poor state of road maintenance and cleaning of the city. The CrimeRussia tries to find out the real reason for the resignation of the Simferopol administration.
