PARIS, June 22. /TASS/. Alexander Shprygin, who heads the All-Russian Fans’ Union, was expelled from France last night, the country’s Interior Ministry said on Wednesday.
"The plane carrying him took off from the Paris airport Roissy-Charles de Gaulle shortly after midnight and is en route to Moscow," the ministry said in a statement. Shprygin’s visa was cancelled and he is banned from entering France.
The All-Russian Fans’ Union is a Russian public organization uniting supporters of all sports, but mainly football fans.
AFP news agency reported earlier citing police sources that following his first expulsion Shprygin entered the territory of France after coming to Barcelona, Spain. He managed to do so despite being on a list of persons banned from entering the Schengen countries for taking part in disturbances of football fans in Marseille at Euro 2016.
France’s Interior Ministry said on Tuesday that Shprygin’s visa had been issued by another Schengen country, not France.
