Russia’s General Consul in Marseille Daniil Boltax confirmed that the 50-year-old fan died after the Saturday fight with Russian fans (TASS). The mass fights took place immediately after the England-Russia game at Stade Velodrome in Marseille, on June 11 (1:1).
Due to that fact, 43 supporters of Russian national team were detained for investigative purposes, as their bus was moving across southern France. Under the French law, they may be detained for the period up to 48 hours.
During detention, some of the Russian fans refused to show their IDs, so law enforcers could use force against them. However, the Russian consul prevented such scenario and settled the situation.
