The capital club has vowed to track down and expose the perpetrators who shot at Dinamo players and staff with paintball guns.

Russian Premier League side Dinamo Moscow has vowed to find and discover a group of fans that assaulted club players and staff on Friday.

Friday, a group of supporters dressed in camouflage unleashed a paintball attack on club players and coaching staff at Dinamo's training ground, leaving behind flyers threatening the club's foreign players and demanding improved results. Dinamo has lost eight of its 11 matches so far this season.

"We're set to use all the resources we have at our disposal to discover those responsible and bring them to court," said a statement on the club's official website. "We are also set to make the names of those responsible public."

The attack has left some Dinamo players in fear for their safety.

"I just can't find the right words," midfielder Alan Gatagov told R-Sport. "What are we supposed to do now? Should each of us hire a personal bodyguard? I was hit in the back of the head when they shot at us. Lots of players were also hit."
