Moscow’s Presnensky court on Wednesday found Russian footballers Alexander Kokorin and Pavel Mamaev guilty of hooliganism and jailed them for 18 and 17 months respectively.
The former Russian internationals have been in custody since October, and the time will count towards time served. The duo will serve the rest of their sentence in a general regime penal colony.
Kokorin’s younger brother... Еще Kirill and their friend Alexander Protosavitsky were also found guilty of assaulting the officials.
Kokorin and Mamaev assaulted Russian Trade Ministry official Denis Pak in a cafe in the Russian capital on October 8. They also beat up a driver earlier in that day in Moscow.
