At 4 p.m., the administrative cases against the football fans Zmitser Khvedaruk, Vital Budzko and Yury (surname unknown) were considered at the Barysaŭ District Court by Judge A. Bolatau.

The fans were charged under Art. 17.1 of the Code of Administrative Offenses, using foul language in public, and 23.4, insubordination to legal claims of the police. The judge sentenced Vital Budzko and Zmitser Khvedaruk 1.8 million rubles each.

Let us remind that Zmitser Khvedaruk, Vital Budzko, Yury and two more people were detained for wearing scarves with the emblem “Pahonia” at the qualifying match of the European Football Championship “Belarus-Macedonia” that was held on Monday at Barysaŭ-Arena.

The head of the Belarusian Football Federation Siarhei Rumas commented on the incident: “We are trying to clear out this case with the police. Our press-service will issue a statement about it soon.”
