Russian FA in denial over racism - Football Against Racism in Europe

Zenit St Petersburg striker Hulk is embarrassed by the level of racism in Russian football.

The Russian Football Union (RFS) is in "denial" over the issue of racism according to anti-discrimination group Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE), and must take a tougher stance ahead of hosting the 2018 World Cup.

The RFS has come under criticism this week for imposing a two-match ban on FC Ufa's Ghanaian player Emmanuel Frimpong for his reaction to alleged racist abuse.

Spartak Moscow, whose fans were accused of taunting the former Arsenal midfielder, were not punished. Spartak were...

FIFA questions RFU over response to Emmanuel Frimpong abuse

Russia's preparations for the 2018 FIFA World Cup are continuing to make progress, despite ongoing investigations into the bid process by Swiss authorities.
Emmanuel Frimpong has criticised the RFU for failing to punish Spartak Moscow for their supporters' actions.

FIFA has asked the Russian Football Union (RFU) to explain why it banned FC Ufa midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong for two matches for his reaction to racism from Spartak Moscow fans while not punishing the alleged abusers' club.

Spartak Moscow's crisis reaches historic nadir for Russia's biggest club

Under owner Leonid Fedun, Spartak Moscow are gradually fading into irrelevance in Russian football.

Imagine a Real Madrid fan being voted as Barcelona president. Imagine a Liverpool supporter taking over at Manchester United. Those situations might seem unthinkable, but a similar scenario became reality in Russia back in 2003, when Kiev-born Dynamo Kiev admirer Leonid Fedun bought Spartak Moscow.

The rivalry between Spartak and Dynamo was the most intense of the former Soviet Union. It was not only about the Russian capital versus the Ukrainian capital, but also about different footballing...

Spartak Moscow fined by Russian Football Union for racist banner

Only women and children will be able to attend the fan sector at Spartak Moscow's next two away games.

Spartak Moscow have been fined and their fans barred from two away games after the club lost their appeal against sanctions for a racist banner.

The Russian Football Union said Spartak fans displayed "a banner of discriminatory content with a racist symbol," specifically a Celtic cross, typically used in Russia as a symbol for white supremacist groups.

Spartak were fined 200,000 rubles ($3,700) over the incident, which took place during the team's 1-0 Russian Premier League loss to Arsenal Tula...
