FIFA PROBES RUSSIAN FEDERATION OVER RACIST CHANTS

World football governing body, FIFA has started “disciplinary proceedings” against the Russian Football Union for alleged racist chanting aimed at French players when the two countries played in March.

Russia, who will host the 2018 World Cup this summer, lost the home friendly 3-1 in St Petersburg.

Russia was previously charged with racist behaviour by its fans at the last two European Championships and had paid a fine.
