MOSCOW, December 2 (Itar-Tass) —— The Moscow police detained about 20 football fans at a Europa League group stage match between Lokomotiv Moscow and Austria’s Sturm at the Luzhniki stadium on Thursday, a spokesman of the Moscow police task force told Itar-Tass on Friday.
Some 13,000 football fans, including 300 Sturm football fans, attended the football match, he said. Lokomotiv defeated 3-1 Sturm.
“Serious incidents were averted at the match. Meanwhile, the police detained about 20 people for various administrative offences: petty hooliganism and the use of pyrotechnics,” the spokesman said. “Most detainees were drunken,” he said.
The protocols about administrative offences were made up, after that they were released, the spokesman said.
A brawl sparked up between Austrian fans and Lokomotiv fans several hours after the match at the hotel, where Sturm fans were accommodated.
The district police reported that three foreigners were injured. The hooligans broke the nose and inflicted the head injury to one of them. “Two more fans got slight injuries. After the medical aid all three of them were discharged from the hospital,” he said.
Two fans were detained for the fistfight with the foreigners, the press service of the Moscow police department told Itar-Tass. The police are investigating the incident.
The beaten Austrian fans were drunken and “gave contradictory testimony” over the details of the brawl, a source in the law enforcement agencies said earlier. “A fan claimed that there were five attackers, the second one said there are one hundred attackers,” the source said. Detained Lokomotiv fans were also drunken and failed to give testimony immediately.
