Stepanov, 42, was once Russia’s most feared football thug. He earned his nickname by killing his thug’s rival and was portrayed as being involved in a brutal brawl.
However, five years after the Russian hooligan army rioted Euro 2016Vasily said he is now more warned about the pandemic that is hitting his home country.
Russia hosts seven games in the championship-all in St. Petersburg-but at 11,699 on Friday, daily Covid cases are starting to sneak up.
“There is a super danger from Covid-19, not from Ultrasfan,” he told Sun Online.
He continued: ” Euro 2020 I go to work as usual, do something at home, and lazyly watch football on TV at the Irish pub in Moscow. “
Vasily explained that a fan ID is required to access Russian games, and like any other known Hardman, the fan ID has been disabled by security services.
Former hooligans said, “The new generation of supporters look like clowns, don’t remember the names of one-third of the players, just want to take a flashy selfie, go to the stadium in improperly dressed office plankton. I moaned.
He says the Russian hooligans are grounded and will not travel to foreign games during the euro period.
“Everything is stale and dull in the euro. As always, British drunkenness will make noise where it is forgiven,” Vasily told Sun Online.
The only violence he foresaw was a potential clash when Polish and Swedish fans met in St. Petersburg on June 23, predicting a potential “gentle pinch of the tail.”
But with his Hardman behind him, Vasily also provided a warning to fans participating in the virus danger game.
“Everyone, be careful. Covid will not forgive anyone. Follow all recommended precautions to prevent the spread of the coronavirus infection,” he said.
What happened to Russia’s Ultras at Euro 2016?
English fans were attacked by a Russian football hooligan gang in a scene that shocked football at Euro 2016.
The shocking violence that became known as the “Battle of Marseille” saw a riot broke out on June 11, when three Lions fans clashed with Ultras.
French prosecutors called the Russians “ultra-rapid and ultra-violent.”
One police officer said that Russia’s Job “arrived like an army” before launching a “commando-style attack.”
It is speculated that the gangs were trained and looking for problems, and some gangs wore MMA gloves and were armed with hammers and iron rods.
Subsequent violence left 14 English supporters in the hospital, two of whom were life-threatening injured.
Violence has been blamed and a major crackdown on Russian football hooligans has been seen as the World Cup was scheduled to take place in 2018.
Three fathers, Stewart Gray, were left dead after being ambushed by the hooligans-and this week they talked about how they were “good at killing him.”
Witnesses saw a ruthless thug breaking bricks and chairs on his head-putting him into a coma for three weeks and requiring six months of hospital care.
His brother Duncan said: “It was like a war zone, the worst violence I’ve ever seen.
“Stewart is alive and lucky. So are others. Sure, there may have been a murder on the street.”
Meanwhile, the legendary Ultra of St. Petersburg’s Alexey Nesterov (51), known as Gulliver, who once rushed to the pitch to put opposition players on the floor, said these euros were with British fans as in 2016. He said there was no street battle.
A prominent leader in Landskrona, Ultras in Zenit St. Petersburg, he said: As a result, there can be no anxiety.
“And even these drunken thugs from Britain, who behave like pigs in all countries, will be very strict about their place where they come here.”
He explained that no one knows that the Ultras community has lost access to the game due to the fan identity system.
And like his comrade Vasily, he also aimed for a new generation of softer fans.
He states: “People who eat Kokoshnik (a traditional Russian women’s headdress) and Shawarma will watch over this year.
“You won’t get a story about Putin’s soldier, the horrifying football hooligan. You won’t get a story like that.”
Dmitry Cocorin, 47, a Moscow-based Millwall fan, said: “Given the current state of Covid-19, most Russian fans watch Euro games with their friends on TV or at the bar at home.”
“Russia has long and systematically fought the hooligans on the stands. Now the stadium and its surroundings are calm.”
He states: “Most fans of old schools settled long ago, got family and jobs, and were no longer a threat to others.
“Both preventive work and precautions have been applied to young people.
“The active hooligan movement in Russia has virtually disappeared.”
Nonetheless, FSB and National Guard have reportedly “specially controlled” fans arriving from Poland for fear of possible conflict.
Covid continues to riot, limiting fan movement and restricted participation in the game, casting a shadow over the entire tournament.
There are 45 new Covid deaths in St. Petersburg today, and it is alleged that Vladimir Putin hosted the International Economic Forum last week, limiting numbers.
Dr. Lev Averbakh, Head of Private Ambulance Service Coris, warned of the “infinite flow” of medical vehicles trying to bring patients to hospitals.
“Above all, we have football,” he said, begging fans to break their tickets and watch the game from home.

“Otherwise you would have to look from the intensive care unit, and I assure you, it would be difficult to see from there.”
Meanwhile, another Russian Millwall fan, Maxim Prohorenko, said:
“You can’t see this enemy with your face.”
England kicks off in a tournament with Croatia on Sunday and Russia will launch a campaign with Belgium tomorrow.
