Some reports said 23 were involved in the fight. 

Samyshkin had a wife and son, aged five. 

He died of head injuries, said Dmitry Chechulin, an official with the Investigative Committee.

A criminal investigation has been launched. 

The rival fans had been battling over banners, flags and scarves that Sibir fans allegedly claimed from their rivals in September. 

The Yenisey fans wanted them back and challenged Sibir supporters to a fight.

É lamentável que o fanatismo pelo futebol destrua tantas vidas. Isso acontece muito no meu país,mas na Sibéria também há pessoas desequilibradas que colocam para fora todos os recalques e acabam tirando a vida de pessoas de bem. Espero que os responsáveis por esses crimes sejam punidos exemplarmente.
