A group of England football supporters have been injured in an alleged attack ahead of the World Cup qualifier in Kiev.
Some 30 hooded Ukrainians armed with knives are said to have set upon the fans in a coffee shop.
Three Britons were taken to hospital following the fight on Sunday night, according to local reports.
A Foreign Office spokesman said: "We are aware of incidents in Kiev involving British nationals. We are providing consular assistance."
The Three Lions will take on their Ukrainian opponents in Kiev's Olympic Stadium on Tuesday night.
A win for England would move them to within touching distance of a place in next summer's finals in Brazil.
