WARSAW, June 13 (Itar-Tass) — Sixteen Russian football fans were hospitalized in Poland after clashes with Polish fans ahead of a Euro 2012 match between the two teams on Tuesday, the head of Masovian Voivodeship, Jacek Kozlowski, told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“Medical aid was provided to 25 Russian citizens, sixteen of them were hospitalized, but soon after medical examination and necessary treatment they were discharged,” he said.
“Only one Russian remains in hospital. He had maxillofacial trauma, but this is not a serious case. Today or tomorrow he will also leave hospital,” Kozlowski said.
“No Russian got serious injuries,” he said denying the reports that one fan was killed.
Kozlowski expressed apologies on behalf of the local authorities to Russian fans and guests “who came for Euro 2012 and found themselves in such a situation.”
“We feel shame that such irresponsible people who distorted safety appeared in Warsaw,” he said noting that “among them were Russians as well, but in lesser numbers.”
At present, Polish police detained 25 Russian citizens, Kozlowski said.
“After investigations an urgent court hearing will take place. Different charges – attacks on police officers, brawl and property destruction – were brought against them,” he said.
“They will most probably face fines, but if a sentence is pronounced, a violator will be deported from Poland and will be registered in the EU black list for a period of five years,” Kozlowski said.
