PARIS, June 14. /TASS/. Authorities of the southeastern French department of Alpes-Maritimes confirmed to TASS that a bus carrying a group of Russian football fans was stopped by police on Tuesday for inspection of documents.
Earlier on Tuesday French law enforcers were reported to stop a bus carrying a group of 29 Russian football fans to Lille to see their national team’s second group stage match of the 2016 UEFA Euro Cup allegedly for inspection of their documents. Alexander Shprygin, the head of the Union of Russian Fans (URF) later stated that the French authorities intended to deport all of the detained people.
The spokesman for the department of the Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur region told TASS that the inspection was initiated following last week’s disturbances in Marseille.
"In case it is established that among the fans are those who were involved in the disturbances they will be transferred under the custody of [French] policemen for further investigation," the spokesman added.
On June 13, French policemen carried out searches in hotel rooms, where members of the URF were accommodated after they arrived to watch the matches of their national football squad.
A number of clashes were reported between foreign football fans and local residents as the major European football tournament kicked off on Friday. Most heated developments took place on the sidelines of the group stage match between team England and Russia as numerous clashes between the fans of both national teams erupted in Marseille on Thursday and culminated on the match day on Saturday.
