Russia have been handed a suspended six-point deduction from their next European Championship qualifying campaign in the wake of disturbances by their fans before last Friday's opening Group A match against the Czech Republic.

The Football Union of Russia (RFS) were also fined €120,000 for "improper conduct" after their fans threw fireworks onto the pitch during the match in Wroclaw which Dick Advocaat's team won 4-1.

UEFA said: "The UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body has decided to impose a deduction of six points on the RFS in the qualifying round of the next European 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."
