According to TASS, the case was sent to the first instance for a new trial.
In mid-May, the Second Cassation Court of General Jurisdiction overturned the Moscow City Court's appeal judgment in the case of Kokorin and Mamaev. Football players who have already served their sentences can obtain re-qualification of the articles of the charge.
The athletes were found guilty in the case of two fights in the center of Moscow in the fall of 2018. They served their sentences in a colony, and in the fall of 2019 they were released.
Earlier it was reported that Yevgeny Lovchev expressed his opinion about the transfer of Kokorin to Spartak.
