She noted that brothers have to retort, but she didn’t even think that “this will result in a tragedy.”

Svetlana Kokorina, the mother of Alexander and Kirill Kokorins, asked the victims to forgive her sons in an interview with the Zvezda TV channel.

“Everything that happens is terrible. We could not even imagine that our children could behave like this,” Kokorina said.

She noted that brothers have to retort, but she didn’t even think that “this will result in a tragedy.”

Kokorina also asked journalists "not to escalate the situation" and give justice the possibility "to sort things out."

On Thursday, the Tverskoy Court of Moscow arrested Zenit striker Alexander Kokorin and his brother Kirill until December 8. At the same time, the court detained midfielder of FC Krasnodar Pavel Mamayev.

All three are suspected of having committed a crime under part 2 of Article 213 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Hooliganism committed by a group of persons).

According to the investigation, on October 8, Kokorin and Mamayev got into a fight with the driver of the Channel One host, and then they beat department head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade department Denis Pak and head of NAMI (developer of presidential cars Aurus) Sergey Gaysin.
