Warsaw: The Russian football federation was fined €35,000 (Dh160,000) on Saturday for the unruly behaviour of its fans at the team’s final European Championship game, further tarnishing the country’s image after two earlier rounds of sanctions at the tournament.

Uefa said the latest punishment relates to “the setting off and throwing of fireworks by spectators, and displaying of illicit banners” during the Group A match against Greece on last Saturday.

It took the total amount of fines handed to the Football Union of Russia at Euro 2012 to €185,000. The team was eliminated at the group stage following their 1-0 loss to the Greeks in their third match.
