MOSCOW, June 17. /TASS/. Russian diplomats and lawyers consider an option of returning home three Russian football fans, who were sentenced in France on Thursday to prison terms between one and two years, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported on Friday.

The ministry added that the staff of the Russian Consulate General’s Office in France planned to meet personally with the three convicted Russian nationals later in the day.

According to earlier French media reports, a court in Marseille ruled on Thursday to sentence three earlier detained Russian football fans, namely Alexei Yerunov, Sergei Gorbachev and Nikolai Morozov, to prison terms between 12 and 24 months after finding them guilty of taking part in mass disturbances last week at the 2016 Euro Cup match between England and Russia.
