‘Retired racketeer’ Orsky advises Kokorin on preserving health in pre-trial detention facility
Earlier, the football player seemed unwell to the PMC member, but ombudsman Potyaeva reported about the prisoner's perfect health.
Mikhail Orsky, the author of the novel The Path of the Russian Gangster. Legends of the dashing 90s, who calls himself a ‘retired racketeer,’ gave advice to footballer Alexander Kokorin how to recover in captivity. The formula is simple: smile to the doctors, drink tea and sleep farther from the draft, HCH reports.
“Of course, one has to drink tea, it keeps you safe from all the diseases. And in the same place the doctors walk, distributing pills in the window. His face (Kokorin’s) is pretty, doctors, tea, women – smile to them, they will give him some pills,” Orsky said after the news about Kokorin’s illness had spread in the media.
During a visit to the Butyrka, the PMC member Ivan Melnikov noticed the pills on the athlete’s bedside table and decided that he was unwell. However, later the Moscow human rights ombudsman, Tatyana Potyaeva, explained that the soccer player drinks vitamins to maintain fitness.
It is to be recalled that Kokorin and Pavel Mamayev were arrested until December 8 in the case of hooliganism and assault.
