With Pashutin we won Eurocup and first participated in the Euroleague. One of the brightest pages of the latest history of Lokomotiv is associated with him. Evgeny is an experienced and strong coach who knows how to play for the result and knows how to prepare the team for important matches. He must convey his experience, character and return confidence to the team. We are grateful to Bogdan Karaicic, he worked out an important segment, but it was not possible to conduct it stably. In December difficult matches await us and the team should be ready for them.

Evgeny Pashutin returns to Krasnodar, from 2012 to 2014 he was already the head coach of Loko. Under the leadership of Evgeny the railroad won the Eurocup in the 2012/13 season and were one step away from entering the Euroleague playoffs in the 2013/14.
