Iran has sent five police officers to Russia to help Russian police protect Iranian fans at the 2018 World Cup, according to Brigadier-General Hadi Shirzad, head of the International Police Department (INTERPOL) of the Interior Ministry.
"We found that thousands of Iranians went to encourage their national team in Russia, so we came to the idea of sending Iranian officers to protect them and help them in any difficulties," says Colonel Sherzad in an interview with Tasnim News Agency.
But some of the officers seem to be from the Revolutionary Guards and the intelligence services. We fear that they will be in Russia to collect information about Iranian fans, especially women, and to provide security reports to the competent authorities, especially after Brigadier General Sherzad That these officers take full command of security issues.
"I expect the arrests of Iranian women protestors who have appeared without a hijab in Russia. The presence of these officers in Russia is very worrying," said one of the Iranian women activists present for the match. According to Brigadier General Sherzad, the presence of Iranian officers in Russia has another objective: sharing experiences with the Russian police. He also explained that the presence of Iranian officers in Russia took place before the World Cup and will continue until the end.
Of the countries participating in the 2018 World Cup, Iran is the only country that prevents women from entering football fields. What happened was no surprise to the Iranian authorities. The women of the village of Shahidjan have been following matches for the last ten years in local football competitions Which shows their old challenge to the ban. And the province of Bushehr in the south-west of the country is located in the famous nuclear reactor, one of the provinces of Iran, which forms part of the Arab population.
In early April 2018, the Iranian newspaper Sobh Nu reported in one of its reports to the village. Since then, this village has become famous, given the courage of its residents, who were not afraid to face a decision imposed by the Iranian authorities since 1981.
