Russian football fans in France have to comply with the demands of the local authorities. "R-Sport" reports this with reference to the Russian Sport Minister and the head of the Russian Football Union Vitaliy Mutko.
"The French authorities have their own requirements, it is necessary to obey their demands, and then everything will be all right", he said.
Mutko added that after the riots in Marseille analysis identified some Russian fans as initiators.
"There is a decision on deportation, but they do not get off the bus and do not want to fulfill their requirements. Consul is going there; I hope he will come in time. As consul comes, he will help them to withdraw from the bus. Now they behave quite independently. As long as dialog is in progress, they will be fine", the minister added.
