MOSCOW, August 5. /TASS/. The Russian Football Union (RFU) will adapt the main document of the Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE) organization to national conditions, the head of the RFU Disciplinary Committee said on Wednesday.
"I think we will do it within a month," Artur Grigoryants said.
The RFU’s Disciplinary Committee has been very active imposing penalties on domestic football clubs for their fans misconduct, which often manifested race-hatred behavior, during the games.
Security and fans behavior during football matches is under close attention of the Russian football authorities also because the country is in full swing preparations for hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2018.
FARE is a network set up in 1999 to counter discrimination in the European football.
The network has received backing from the European governing body UEFA, FIFA and the European Commission.
