MOSCOW, November 22 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian Interior Ministry likes the idea of adopting a federal law on sports fans as soon as possible, the chief of the ministry’s public order department, Yuri Demidov, told the media on Thursday.
“The bill the Russian Sports Ministry has drafted together with the Interior Ministry determines, among other things, the rules of maintaining law, order and security in holding spots events,” he said. “Regrettably, there are still no clear legal code of conduct at sports facilities or the powers of organizers in maintaining security. The will was drafted on the basis of the experience of European countries and the world. In many of them these issues have long been settled.”
Demidov said the question of using identification papers is the most sensitive one.
“This procedure is used in some countries. The bill establishes administrative punishment for abusers at sports stadiums, including a ban to visit soccer matches for a period of up to twelve months. The measure is quite successful in other countries. True, the ban is an extreme measure, but it may begin to be used in our country against those who have a past record of legal abuse,” Demidov said.
