St PETERSBURG, July 29. /TASS/. Russian security services and their foreign counterparts will work out the procedures for cutting short fans’ hooliganism at the FIFA World Cup championship, which Russia hosts in 2018, so as to prevent a repetition of the incidents that took place at EURO 2016 in France, Alexander Bortnikov, the director of the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) told reporters on Thursday.
He said that a special expert group set up for coordinating security issues at World Cup 2018 and the 2019 Winter World University Games, also to be held in Russia, got down to work at the international conference of security service officials in St Petersburg on Thursday.
The launch of the expert group is the first step in joint preparations of world security services to the forthcoming competitions, Bortnikov said, recalling that a similar group set up for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi included representatives of 37 countries.
