MOSCOW, September 24. /TASS/. The police have detained head of the Russian Fans Union Alexander Shprygin, who came to take part in the conference of the Russian Football Union.
The police are searching his house and office under a criminal case on hooliganism, press service of the Moscow police told TASS on Saturday.
"These actions are organized under investigation into the criminal case after a mass fighting in central Moscow on January 31, 2016 between football fans," the press service said.
Earlier, Shprygin was questioned as a witness under the case investigation.
A mass fight between fans of hockey teams was late in the evening on January 31, 2016. The police interfered, stopped the fight and detained four people. Under the investigation into the criminal case on the fight, the police searched homes of the alleged active participants and organizers.
The Russian Fans Union was organized in 2007 with support from current head of the Russian Football Union Vitaly Mutko - despite objections from law enforcers. The reason for that was the mixed reputation of the fans movement in Russia, which included groups of football hooligans.
