MOSCOW, December 20. /TASS, Oleg Koshelev/. Necessary security measures will be provided during the UEFA Champions League fixture between the football clubs of Turkey’s Fenerbahce and Russia’s Krasnodar in Istanbul in February, the press service of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) told TASS on Tuesday.
"We are confident that all the necessary security measures will be taken by the host club together with the local authorities to ensure the safety and security of the spectators, the players and the match officials," UEFA’s press service told TASS.
Security concerns regarding large-scale events both in Russia and Turkey surfaced after Russia’s Ambassador to Turkey Andrei Karlov was assassinated in the Turkish capital of Ankara during the late afternoon of December 19.
Karlov was gunned down during the opening ceremony of a photo exhibition devoted to Russia in the Center for Contemporary Art in Ankara, where the assailant opened fire into the crowd.
Three Turkish nationals were wounded during the attack, while the assailant - a 22-year-old former riot police officer - was eliminated by local security forces. Russian authorities labelled the assassination as an act of terrorism.
