French Special Forces stopped the group of Russian fans that were going to watch football match with Slovakia. "R-Sport" reports this, referring to Russia football fan community president Alexander Shprygin.
"Our group wanted to arrive to Lille. As our bus left Cannes, about a hundred of the Special Forces troops with machine guns surrounded it and moved away from the road. Now they want us to take our stuff and go out of the bus somewhere. Earlier they said it was drugs and weapons check-up, now they say it's an order of French Prosecutor's Office", he said on the phone.
According to Shprygin, Russian Consulate in France and Interior Ministry of Russia are aware of the incident.
"We said that we are not going anywhere and demand an interpreter to clear the situation. We have been already waiting for an hour", Shprygin added.
