YAROSLAVL, October 31 (Itar-Tass) - At least 40 people were detained and taken to police stations in Yaroslavl after disorders at the Russian Cup 1/16 final soccer match between Shinnik and Spartak, the regional police press service said. The game ended 0:1.
Police thwarted attempts of mass misconduct during the match, for which more than 7,000 Spartak fans had arrived in Yaroslavl. Before the beginning, police detained 16 fans from Moscow and the Moscow Region for being drunk and misbehavior. At the 53rd minute, a fan got onto the field, ran across and climed over the barrier into the sector of Spartak fans. He ignored the demands of policemen and offered resistance. At the moment, fans provoked mass public order violations. They broke plastic chairs and threw chairs at each other and policemen. The match was suspended.
Police stopped the actions of fans. The game resumed and ended without more incidents.
The most active participants in the disorders were detained. About 40 people were taken to police stations. After the match, Spartak fans, accompanied by police, left Yaroslavl in 12 buses and a special train, the press service said.
