PARIS, June 14 : UEFA's disciplinary body says Russia will be disqualified from the European Championship if there is more fan violence inside stadiums in France.

Russia was charged after its fans attacked English rivals in Marseille after Saturday's 1-1 draw.

Russia, which was also charged over fan racism and fireworks being set off during the game, has been fined 150,000 euros ($169,000) by UEFA.

UEFA says Russia's "disqualification is suspended until the end of the tournament. Such suspension will be lifted if incidents of a similar nature (crowd disturbances) happen inside the stadium at any of the remaining matches of the Russian team during the tournament."

Russia has two more games in Group B.
