UEFA has fined the Russian soccer association $150,000 because its fans attacked stadium administrators during a match against the Czech Republic last week in Poland. If the countries fans become violent again at Euro 2012, Russia could be penalized six points in its qualifying group for the next European championships. UEFA said in a statement, "This decision is suspended for a probationary period running from now until the end of the playoffs of the next UEFA European Football Championship."
