The charges were imposed by the independent Uefa Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB).

In a statement, Uefa said they were brought against the Russian Football Union (RFU) due to crowd disturbances, the use of fireworks and racist behaviour.

It added Russia would be banned from the tournament if any similar incidents happen inside any stadium at any remaining Russian team matches.
