At least one hundred and fifty Russians took part in the riots that took place in Marseille at the end of the Euro 2016 match between Russia and England. The representative of the French prosecutor’s office told this at a press conference, the BBC writes.
It is remarkable that the authorities have not been able to identify and detain any Russians, as they were well prepared and organized. The department explained that they conducted the lightning attack on the opponents, and then immediately ran away.
"Russian fans were perfectly ready for a fast ultra-violence", the representative of the prosecutor's office said.
At the same time, police arrested two Russians, but for the penetration of a football field during a match. According to the prosecutor’s office, there are about 12 thousand fans from Russia in Marseille. Now police continue to examine records from surveillance cameras.
