MOSCOW, December 3. /TASS/. Several policemen from Russia’s second largest city, St. Petersburg, will accompany local players of FC Zenit to a Champions League match in Belgium, a police spokesman said on Thursday.
"Several policeman will go to the match in Ghent at the request of Belgian colleagues," he said.
Ghent Mayor Daniel Termont said earlier he would ban the Russian club’s fans from attending the match to prevent possible clashes with local Turks amid aggravated relations between Russia and Turkey. It was decided later, however, to admit Zenit fans to the game after Ghent consulted with football union UEFA and police.
Some 200,000 Turkish migrants currently live in Belgium, 50% of them residing in Ghent and Antwerp.
