    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — UEFA's Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body has decided to hand the Russian Football Union (RFU) a 150,000 euro fine and a suspended disqualification following crowd disturbances at last week's England-Russia match in Marseille.

    "Charges relating to crowd disturbances, use of fireworks and racist behavior had been brought against the RFU, and the CEDB decided to impose the following sanctions: A fine of €150,000; A suspended disqualification of the Russian national team from UEFA EURO 2016 for the crowd disturbances," UEFA said in a statement.
