TOULOUSE, June 20. /TASS/. Security at the 2016 UEFA Euro Cup group stage match between Russia and Wales, scheduled to kick off in less than two hours in Toulouse, is under full control of police, a Russian Interior Ministry’s law enforcer, dispatched to France to assist French colleagues, told TASS.
"The Russian Interior Ministry is closely cooperating with local law enforcement bodies," the Russian policeman said in an interview with TASS. "The operative situation is ideal; everything is under control and runs smoothly. On the whole, the atmosphere is festive and friendly."
He also said that jointly with his other Russian colleagues, who were sent to France for the duration of the 2016 Euro Cup, they watched the match between England and Wales last Thursday in Lens.
"We had a task to visit the match between England and Wales to see how football fans behaved," he said. "I must say that their behavior to each other was exemplary."
The Russian Interior Ministry announced late last month that it dispatched a total of six specially trained Russian policemen to France. According to the ministry, the duration of the Russian policemen’s deployment in France would depend on how the Russian national team would be progressing at the main European football tournament.
Russia is currently standing in the last place of its Group B, having earned one point after two matches it played. Team England tops the group with four points and is followed by Slovakia and Wales with three points each.
