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.
