UEFA have fined the Russian football association, 30,000 ($37,800) for inappropriate behaviour by the fans at a European Championship match against Poland.
The Polish Football Association (PZPN) have also been fined 4,000 euros (£3,230) for the dangerous firework display by the fans during the match against Russia.
UEFA announced on their website: ‘The Football Union of Russia (RFS) has been fined €30,000 for the setting off and throwing of fireworks by spectators, displaying of illicit banners and the invasion of the pitch by a supporter at last week’s UEFA EURO 2012 Group A match against Poland in Warsaw.
UEFA also announced that six points will be deducted to Russia in its Euro 2016 qualifying group if fan violence continues during the qualification matches.
The European soccer body says its disciplinary panel determined that Russian fans displayed ”illicit” nationalist flags and threw fireworks on the field. One man ran across the field carrying a Russian flag after Tuesday’s match.
The punishment adds to Russia’s $150,000 fine imposed after fans attacked stadium staff in Wroclaw at its first match against the Czech Republic.
Russia was eliminated from Euro 2012 after losing 1-0 against Greece on Saturday.
