MOSCOW, June 14. /TASS/. France’s police have announced that a Russian citizen will be deported after a bus with fans was detained in a suburb of Cannes, one of cities hosting the Euro 2016, head of the All-Russian Fans Union Alexander Sprygin told TASS on Tuesday.
Earlier reports said a group of Russian fans was blocked by police in a bus near the city.
"We were detained for unknown reasons, we are all sitting in a bus, and no one comes to us, they haven't sent any translator and explain nothing. One fan came out for document checks and he was told about the deportation. Another reason they told us is terrorism," Sprygin said.
He later said that the French military with the mayor of Cannes has ordered everyone to leave the bus. "They threaten to force us out, but we are standing firm," Sprygin said.
On Monday, the French police carried out searches at a hotel where the representatives of the All-Russian Fans’ Union are staying. Shprygin said the checks came amid the recent disturbances in Marseille.
Executive Director of the All-Russian Fans’ Union Ivan Kuznetsov told TASS that the bus is currently on the territory of a police station. "The bus is staying on the territory of gendarmerie, no one is planning to leave the bus - we are waiting for the consulate staff. They have not explained anything to us, and the first one who agreed to undergo checks was told about the deportation without announcing the reasons," he said.
"We have people of different age here. Here are both men older than 60 and young women," he said.
