MOSCOW, October 9 (Itar-Tass) – About a hundred football fans were detained in the Luzhniki stadium area Sunday during or after a game between Spartak Moscow and Zenit St Petersburg.
The game was one of the events of the 26th round of Russia’s national football championship.
The reasons for detaining the fans were “hooliganism, the use of pyrotechnical devices, and intoxication with alcohol,” the press service of Moscow City Interior Department said.
No serious incidents were registered. The authorities brought in 2,500 servicemen of the Interior troops and policemen, including 400 members of special assignment /Spetsnaz/ units to guard law and order.
Of the 40,000 or so spectators who had come to Moscow’s biggest stadium, about 4,500 were the Zenit fans who had arrived in Moscow from St Petersburg.
The teams drew the game 2:2.
The police heightened attention to Sunday’s game after a bus carrying Zenit fans underwent an attack on the territory of the Tver region early morning.
The operative staff of the city’s police held conferences with the chiefs of security services of the Spartak and Zenit football clubs.
