Fight in Central Moscow Sends 3 Football Fans to Hospital

Police have detained 10 people after a massive fight among football fans in central Moscow that left at least three people injured, Russian media reports said.

The fight occurred outside a cafe on Lesnaya Ulitsa, a spokesman for Moscow police said Sunday, TASS news agency reported, adding that three people were hospitalized for their injuries.

The fight broke out among fans of rival football clubs, LifeNews reported, citing unidentified sources.

Witnesses said that about 50 people were involved in the fight, some of whom had their faces covered by masks, LifeNews reported.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
