No Typikon or other service book (in my recollection) assigns the prokeimenon
at any service to the priest or deacon. It is the common Russian usage to
have the deacon or the priest do the prokeimenon at Vespers & Matins. BUT it is
usual to have the reader of the OT lessons do the prokeimena at the
Vespers/Presanctified just as at the Divine Liturgy. The reader does the prokeimena
from the same place as the lessons.
