Spartak Moscow are embroiled in a fresh racism row after sending a tweet about three black players.
The message was accompanied by several emojis of laughing faces and chocolate bars, above a 13-second clip showing the players, reported to be the Brazilian trio Fernando, Luiz Adriano and Pedro Rocha, smiling while stretching in sunny conditions.
Anti-discriminatory body Kick It Out added: "This social media post from the official account of Spartak Moscow only continues to highlight the prejudices towards black people in Russian Federation".
One body presumably unperturbed by this latest story from Russian Federation is FIFA, who, having given the World Cup to Russian Federation, disbanded their anti-racism taskforce in September 2016 a year ago declaring that their "work was done".
There are reports that Spartak's Twitter account was actually being controlled by defender Georgi Dzhikiya at the time the tweet in question was posted.
The post, which has subsequently been deleted, was released on the club's official and verified Twitter account on Saturday and included emoji symbols of chocolate bars and a sunshine in the headline.
BBC Sport has requested a response from Spartak Moscow. "References like this show how some minorities are seen by some in the country", said Piara Powar. Spartak were charged with racism in December 2017, after Liverpool youngster Ryan Brewster accused any opposition player of racially abusing him during their UEFA Youth League clash. "We are a united family".
