MOSCOW, October 29. /TASS/. About 70 people were detained by the police in Moscow on Saturday for various violations during the game between the football clubs Spartak Moscow and CSKA Moscow, the press service of the city’s Interior Department told TASS.
Coordinated actions by the police helped prevent any serious accidents involving the fans. "The police ensured the full scope of security measures during the game," the press service said. "Seventy people were detained, and seven of them for the use of pyrotechnical devices (flares)."
Spartak won 3-1 on Sarturday vs CSKA in the 12th round of the Russian Premier League. The teams played at Spartak's home stadium in the Tushino area, in northwestern Moscow.
Goals were scored for Spartak by Denis Glushakov (19th min) and Ze Luis (76th, 89th min). After this victory, Spartak is leading in the Premier League, getting 28 points after twelve meets.
The situation in the pitch was as exciting as on the spectator stands where the fans of both teams, known for rather tense relations since the inception of informal fan groupings back in the early 1980s, tried to provoke each other on a number of occasions and hurled blazing pyrotechnical devices from one stand to another.
The game was interrupted for several minutes because of dense smoke caused by pyrotechnics.
