"Pavel Mamaev and Alana saved my disfigured face." Family paid for plastic surgery of a stranger
Irina Malysheva’s family had been unable to find the money for a good plastic surgery.
Alexander Kokorin and Pavel Mamaev will be kept in Butyrka until December 8 by court decision. Two weeks have passed from the day when they beat people on the streets of Moscow. All this time, the public and the media have been bringing up every failure and every stupid thing they did being drunk.
However, recent days have seen a reverse trend. People have stood up for Kokorin on social media, making posts with the hashtag #sashamystoboi (Sasha [Alexander], we are with you). Mamaev, as it turned out, helped those in need.
This summer, Pavel Mamaev and his wife Alana helped Irina Malysheva, 25. The young woman was beaten and cut by glass fragments in an Apsheronsk cafe, Krasnodar region. Irina's face was disfigured beyond recognition: a swollen blue eye, a dislocated mouth, and a dangling cheek. Local surgeons stitched the scars up with coarse thread. The ugly stitches stretched from the eyes to the chin. The family had been unable to find the money for a good plastic surgery: Irina and her spouse are raising two children and paying a mortgage. The woman mustered the courage to make a post on social media asking people for financial help.
“I was terrified that people were going to read my story, but there was no other way. People shared the post and helped. But the help was very little, certainly not enough for the surgery. Then I got a call from Alana Mamaeva. She had found my phone number. I had never heard of Alana or her husband before,” MK quoted Irina Malysheva as saying.
The cry for help did not go unnoticed. Soon, Irina posted a new photo of her bandaged face. Doctors of a German clinic were beside her. The caption read: "Thank you, Alana Mamaeva." As the press found out, the Mamaevs helped the stranger to get an international passport, paid for the air tickets to Berlin and for the surgery.

When Irina Malysheva asked Alana why she was helping her, the footballer’s wife answered that there was no hesitation because she had found herself left alone with her troubles many times.
Businessman Mikhail Derbenev’s death year ago and "Tyumen-Sevastopol" partnership: where’s the link?
In early June last year, 40-year-old Director of the state-owned unitary enterprise Proekt Razvitiya Balaklavy ('Balaklava Development Project') Mikhail Derbenev was found dead in his Sevastopol apartment. He died under mysterious circumstances, and his death was preceded by a scandal about 380 million rubles ($5.9 mln) from budget of Yugra that disappeared in offshores in Cyprus and Seychelles through OOO Lloyd-Patterson, the founder of which he is still him. The CrimeRussia was figuring out what could have caused the businessman’s death, what is the connection between Tyumen, Yugra, Sevastopol and Karachay-Cherkessia, how the governor Ovsyannikov develops Balaklava (and does he?) and why the head of the Ministry of Construction Vladimir Yakushev and Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin have been spoted in this story.
