As for the Russian fans, who already in Austria expires Schengen visa, then they are allowed to remain in the country until July 1, 2008. This is due to the fact that a significant number of Russian fans, who came to Austria for the matches of the European Football Championship, the visa issued only during the group stage of the tournament. As a result, many of our fellow citizens have not been able to visit the quarterfinal match against the Netherlands.
