2 Russian soccer internationals charged after brawls

MOSCOW (AP) – Two Russian internationals have been charged with aggression and vandalism after both were involved in two fights in Moscow earlier this month.

Alexander Kokorin of Zenit St. Petersburg and Pavel Mamayev of FC Krasnodar were accused Thursday after fights in a hotel and a cafeteria. Three people were injured in the incidents.

Both players were arrested on October 11 pending an investigation. They could face imprisonment for up to five years if convicted.

Kokorin has played 48 times for Russia, while Mamayev has made 15 international appearances since 2010-16.
