MOSCOW, November 30. /TASS/. Russian football fans will be able to visit the Champions League match in Belgium’s city Ghent between Russian FC Zenit St. Petersburg and the local football club set for December 9, the Belgian police said on Monday.
"The fans will be able to attend the match," the police said. "This is the final decision."
More than a thousand Russian fans will attend the match.
Ghent Mayor Daniel Termont earlier banned the Russian club’s fans from attending the match to avoid conflicts as Ghent has a large Turkish diaspora. This follows downing of the Russian Su-24 bomber in Syria by the Turkish air force, which led to aggravation of bilateral ties between Moscow and Ankara.
Some 200,000 Turkish migrants currently live in Belgium, and 50% of them reside in Ghent and Antwerp.
