MOSCOW, June 15. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has urged the permanent members of the Security Council to derive lessons from France’s experience of hosting major international football events from the standpoint of ensuring security, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
"The Security Council discussed the need for deriving lessons regarding ways of ensuring security from the French experience of organizing football matches in the context of proceeding preparations for the 2018 World Soccer Cup finals," Peskov said.
France is hosting European Cup finals. The first days of the tournament were overshadowed by several major clashes between fans, including Russians. The conflict between Russian and English fans before and during the match between their national teams in Marseille on June 11 was one of the worst.
Taking part in Wednesday’s Security Council meeting were Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, chief of the presidential staff Sergey Ivanov, Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matviyenko, Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev, his deputy Rashid Nurgaliyev, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev, Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu, director of the federal security service FSB Aleksandr Bortnikov and chief of the foreign intelligence service SVR Mikhail Fradkov.
