Russia will spend the next three-and-a-half years playing under the threat of a six-point deduction for their 2016 European Championship qualifying campaign after Uefa got tough over the behaviour of their fans.
The Football Union of Russia (RFS) were also fined £96,761 for the violent, offensive and unsafe conduct of their supporters during their opening Euro 2012 Group A tie with Czech Republic on Friday.
It got worse for the RFS yesterday when Uefa opened disciplinary proceedings against them over the behaviour of their fans in last night's game against co-hosts Poland.
And there could be further sanctions with Uefa confirming they were still investigating allegations Czech defender Theodor Gebre Selassie was subjected to monkey chanting in Friday's match.
Announcing the punishment for incidents in that game, Uefa said in a statement: "The Uefa Control and Disciplinary Body has decided to impose a deduction of six points on the Football Union of Russia 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 Championship.
"The Football Union of Russia has also been fined €120,000.
"The RFS was facing charges for the improper conduct of its supporters, 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."
Violence erupted at the game with the Czechs when a handful of stewards were attacked by large group of fans in a walkway in the 40,000-capacity Municipal Stadium.
Supporters in the stands also set off and threw fireworks, as well as displaying a nationalist 'Russian Empire' flag, something which has been associated with the far right.
An "illicit banner" at the Poland game has also landed the RFS in hot water, with fans displaying a giant 'This is Russia' flag, something that could be deemed to relate to the control of Poland in the Cold War.
The sanctions are an embarrassment for Russia, who are under pressure to deal with fan problems, having been named hosts for the 2018 World Cup.
