MARSEILLE, June 12. /TASS/. Russian fans attending the Euro2016 games are not now among those badly injured during the skirmish in Marseille, Russia’s Consulate General in Marseille told TASS on Sunday.
Earlier reports said about 35 fans injured on Saturday, four of them in poor conditions at hospitals.
"Unofficial information is one British fan is on the verge of life and death," the consulate said. "We also have information, which is not confirmed, then another three fans got major injuries and their conditions are poor. Most likely, they are not Russians."
Russian football fans attacked British fans in their sector after the Euro-2016 Russia-England group round match had ended in a draw (1:1).
The match took place at the Velodrome stadium in Marseille late on Saturday. After the final whistle, the Russian fans rushed to the British sector. The arena stewards tried to settle the conflict. A buffer zone, which ought to have separated the Russian and British fans, was absent at the stadium.
The situation around the match was tense - fans began to clash in Marseille Thursday and the clashes culminated Saturday. The police had to use smoke flares, tear gas and water cannons.
French Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet in an interview with BFMTV on Sunday said "the events in Marseille are not failure of the police - they are failure of the world football, which suffers from some of its fans. For the recent three decades, all major football championships, including Euro2012, saw clashes between fans of different teams.".
