MOSCOW, June 13. /TASS/. The French police searched rooms, where stay representatives of the Russian Union of Fans, who have come to France to support the national team at Euro 2016, the Union’s president, Alexander Shprygin, said in an interview with the Moscow Speaking radio station on Monday.
"It was an unpleasant procedure, which violates human rights. Imagine laying in your room, and here the police get in, whistle like a coach on the field, wake up everyone, ask to get up, then write down something for a long time, and explain something. And, you know, it is not clear at all what was the purpose of that preventive activity," he said.
"There are dozens hotels around us. But they preferred to come right to us. Since, probably, we are the only delegation officially accommodated here. And it is much easier to identify and find us," he said. "Many Russians are staying here, but they came only to us."
The Fan Union’s president said during the inspection not a single Russian fan was detained.
The national squads of England and Russia on Saturday ended their football group stage match at the Stade Velodrome, Marseille, in a draw 1-1. During the game, the Russian fans fired two flare guns and after the final whistle, the group rushed to the English fan sector. UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against the RFU after the events inside the stadium: crowd disturbances, setting off of fireworks and making racist insults. The organization warned the Russian and English football associations their national teams could be dismissed from the championship if disorders among fans continue.
