    UEFA will open proceedings against Russia after the recent clashes in Marseilles between Russian and English football fans, a reporter of Associated Press said Sunday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Saturday, Russian national football team played in a draw with the team of England at the UEFA’s Euro 2016 tournaments in France. Following the match, about 30 Russian fans entered the area with England's fans, having broken through a security cordon. The clashes began and the security forces had to separate the groups of fans.

    "BREAKING: UEFA opens disciplinary proceedings against Russia for crowd disturbances, racist behaviour, fireworks being set off. UEFA not opened disciplinary proceedings against English FA over Marseille, only Russia," Rob Harris said on his Twitter account.

    He added that UEFA would decide about the possible introduction of sanctions on Tuesday.
