European football's governing body got tough with the country's fans yesterday over the scenes that have marred Euro 2012 and it is set to get worse for the Football Union of Russia (RFS).
After announcing the suspended points deduction and 12,000-euro fine (£96,761) over incidents that took place in Russia's Group A opener against Czech Republic on Friday, UEFA opened disciplinary proceedings against them over the conduct of supporters in Tuesday's second game against Poland.
And there could be further action to come, with an investigation ongoing into allegations Czech defender Theodor Gebre Selassie was subjected to monkey chanting in Friday's match.
Announcing the punishment for the other incidents in that game, UEFA said in a statement: "The UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body has today decided to impose a deduction of six points on the Football Union of Russia (RFS) in the qualifying round of the next UEFA European Football Championship.
"This decision is suspended for a probationary period running from now until the end of the play-offs of the next UEFA European Football Championship (UEFA Euro 2016).
"The Football Union of Russia (RFS) has also been fined 120,000 euros.
"The RFS was facing charges for the improper conduct of its supporters (crowd disturbances), the setting off and throwing of fireworks and the display of illicit banners at last Friday's UEFA Euro 2012 Group A match against the Czech Republic in Wroclaw.
"An appeal can be lodged against this decision within three days of the dispatch of the written decision."
An "illicit banner" at Tuesday night's game also landed the RFS in hot water, with fans inside the National Stadium in Warsaw displaying a giant 'This is Russia' flag, something that could be deemed to relate to the decades of Moscow control over Poland during the Cold War.
UEFA, who opened proceedings against the co-hosts as well, said in a statement: "UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against the Polish Football Association (PZPN) for setting off fireworks at last night's UEFA Euro 2012 Group A match against Russia in Warsaw.
"Disciplinary proceedings have also been opened against the Football Union of Russia (RFS) for setting off and throwing fireworks, displaying illicit banners and the invasion of the pitch by a supporter."

UEFA said the incidents would not impact on Russia's suspended six-point deduction and that the new cases would be dealt with on Sunday.
The build-up to Tuesday's match was also marred by by violence outside the stadium, trouble flaring after a march by thousands of Russia supporters came under attack by masked hooligans.
It led to 184 arrests, while, according to reports, at least 24 people were injured, including 10 police officers.
