Three Russian fans were sentenced to prison in France


French court sentenced 3 Russians to prison terms ranging from 1 to 2 years after the riots in Marseille.

According to the AFP agency, these are Nikolai Morozov, Sergei Gorbachev, and Alexei Yerunov.

Last Saturday, after the first game of the Russian team at Euro 2016 against England, 30 Russian fans broke through the cordon, entered the sector with English fans, and started clashing.

There were also clashes between fans, local residents, and the police in the city. 30 people were injured as a result of the riots.

In response to that, UEFA handed a suspended disqualification to Russian national team until the end of the championship. The team will be banned from the tournament if the fans provoke clashes again.
