Advice On What To Do If You’re Kidnapped Discovered In Hotel Where Man Utd Fans Are Staying In Russia

Not the advice you expect to see when you check into a hotel (Picture Getty Images/MEN)

Most of us have probably stayed in a rundown hotel at some point or another.


You may have even experienced the shocking realisation that there’s no free WiFi or the tourist information isn’t in English.


But that’s nothing compared to the surprise one Manchester United fan got when he found that some of the paperwork in his hotel room was advice on what to do if you’re being kidnapped.


The supporter, known only as Matt, was one of just 238 fans who made the long journey to see Man U’s Europa League game with FC Rostov in Russia.


He tweeted a picture of the guidance with the words: ‘My hotel in Rostov offers advice I’ve never had at any hotel anywhere else in the world.’


Hooligan elements of the Russian club’s fans featured in a recent documentary about football violence and United fans have already been warned over crime in the country.


Official Home Office advice to tourists in Russia warns that petty crime, muggings and thefts are rife in cities and the threat of terrorism also remains ‘high’.


The guidance, written in broken English, warns guests that they ‘shouldn’t resist’ should they find themselves being kidnapped.


They are told to comply with any demands, remember movements and appearances and try to recall sights and sounds if they are moved.


The sign also includes a telephone number of the ‘on-call service of the FSS’, believed to be the Federal Security Service of Russia.


And when asked by fellow Reds fans, Matt replied: ‘It’s very run down but the people so far are very pleasant.


‘There’s a few bars dotted about too. Not seen any trouble.’


He also tweeted that FC Rostov fans were handing out blankets to cold United fans before the 1-1 draw.
