Nine-time Russian champions Spartak Moscow on Thursday accused fans of their Champions League play-off rivals Fenerbahce of hacking into the club's website and threatening violence.

The charges stemmed from a fiery first leg in Moscow on Tuesday, which the Russians won 2-1 after their fans set fire to a portrait of Kemal Ataturk, the first president of modern Turkey.

"The Father of All Turks" has the effective status of Turkey's national symbol, and portraits and pictures of him on horseback adorn family rooms and buildings across the country.

The Russian government's official newspaper said the Fenerbahce fans had hacked the website overnight on Wednesday and posted a message in Turkish reading: "We do not let crime go unpunished."

Spartak are due to travel to Istanbul for the second leg next Wednesday.
The Spartak site was running again by Thursday afternoon after the club used its Twitter account to blame the incident on "Turkish hackers".

The winner of the head-to-head encounter will qualify for the group stage of Europe's elite club competition.

According to this report of the incident in the Turkish newspaper Hurriyet, UEFA is considering punishing the Russian club even though it is the Muslim Turks who have broken the law and threatened the use of violence!
Turkish flags were also burned by the Spartak fans, according to a report penned by an observer from European football’s governing body, UEFA.

An official response is yet to come from UEFA, but Russian media reports hinted at a possible end to Spartak's Champions League journey if the team ends up being disqualified.

How ridiculous! The Russians did nothing wrong! As you say the Turks threaten violence all the Russians did was burn some pictures.

this is a typical act of muslims:

They start the violence with a provocation, the provocation is answered, then they use the victim's actions to justify their violent response.

I hope the russians crush their bodies.
