Euro 2016: Russia fans deported from France after violent scenes

Publish Time 2016-06-15 13:06:00


Groups of Russia fans are being deported from France after repeated scenes of violence at Euro 2016. French police blamed 150 "well-trained" Russian hooligans for clashes before England played Russia in Marseille.

Six English fans were jailed on Monday for their roles in the disorder and Uefa has threatened to disqualify both teams if there is further violence. Uefa gave Russia a fine and suspended disqualification for scenes inside the stadium after Saturday's 1-1 draw.

Alexandr Shprygin, head of the Russian Union of Supporters, said 29 fans were being escorted to the airport.
