    The police forces from Russia and the United Kingdom arrived in Marseilles to help colleagues determine troublemaking football fans and control the order during the European Football Championship football match between Russia and England, according to head of the Bouches-du-Rhone Police Department Laurent Nunez.

    MARSEILLES (Sputnik) — French authorities will actively cooperate with the police from Russia and the United Kingdom to ensure order during the European Football Championship football match between the two countries, head of the Bouches-du-Rhone Police Department Laurent Nunez said on Thursday.

    The 2016 UEFA European Championship will be held in the French city of Marseilles from June 10 to July 10.

    "As for the so-called sensitive match between Russia and the United Kingdom, which will be held in our city, we will use all the necessary measures to ensure order and safety. In particular, the police forces from Russia and the United Kingdom arrived to help my colleagues determine troublemaking football fans and control the order," Nunez stated during a press conference.

    Earlier on Thursday, French Prosecutor Brice Robin said prosecutors in Marseilles were ready to ban future visits to France for troublemaking football fans coming from abroad to Euro-2016.
