GENEVA, June 18 (Itar-Tass) —— The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) fined the Russian Football Union (RFS) of 30,000 euros for the incidents at the Russia-Poland match, which was held at the Euro-2012 on June 12, UEFA said in a statement posted at its official website on Sunday.
Russian football fans set on fire and hurled the flares on the pitch and showed the banners with the inadmissible content, the statement runs. Meanwhile UEFA noted that this case and the decision on it does not have any bearing on the sanctions, which were imposed on RFS after a first round match between Russian and the Czech Republic. This means that the deprivation of the Russian team of six points is still criminal, UEFA said in the statement.
The Polish Football Association was also fined 4,000 euros, as Polish fans also sparked up and hurled the flares on the pitch during the match.
The disorders on June 12 broke out not only on the stands. The clashes between hooligans began during a march of Russian football fans to the National Stadium before the match. A total of 184 people, including 156 Poles, 25 Russians, a Spaniard, a Hungarian citizen and an Algerian citizen were detained. Several tens of people, including 17 policemen, were injured. Some 25 Russians turned for medical aid.
