MOSCOW , June 13 (Itar-Tass) —— Moscow hopes the Polish authorities will do all so that there should be no more clashes between Russian and Polish fans like those that took place before the game of the national teams of the two countries in Warsaw on June 12, a source in the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.
“At every stage of the preparation for the European Football Championship the Russian Foreign Ministry and our missions in Poland were in touch with the related Polish departments called upon to ensure public order during the games of the Euro 2012 championship,” said Maria Zakharova, the deputy spokesperson of the Russian Foreign Ministry. “Measures were taken to ensure security of Russian fans. Regrettably, provocations of some groups of Polish fans could not have been prevented,” she said.
“The embassy in Warsaw and Russian consular institutions in Poland continue to interact with Polish law enforcers,” the diplomat said. “Everything necessary is being done to give assistance to Russian citizens who were injured or detained,” she said. “Other Russian agencies, specifically, the Ministry of Sports and the Interior Ministry of the Russian Federation, take an active part in these efforts,” she said.
“We hope sincerely that the June 12 events will not be repeated, that the Polish authorities will take every necessary measure and the games to be played will give real joy to all football fans,” Zakharova said.
According to the existing information no one of Russian fans was seriously injured in the clashes. Sixteen Russian citizens were hospitalized to be given medical aid. Only one of them is still in hospital with a light maxillofacial trauma. The Polish police detained 184 persons, 24 of them Russians.
