European politicians are discussing the possibility of transferring the Ice Hockey World Championship from Minsk. If such a decision is not taken, some participants threaten to boycott the tournament.
According to Interfax, Vice-President of the International Ice Hockey Federation IIHF Kalervo Kummola, Director of the Danish Ice Hockey Union Ulrik Larsen, Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin and some members of European parliaments spoke out against the holding of the World Championship in the capital of Belarus. The idea of transferring was supported by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Latvia Edgars Rinkevichs and the self-proclaimed “President of Belarus” Svetlana Tikhanovskaya.
Prime Minister of Belarus Roman Golovchenko, in turn, called the call for a boycott of the World Cup untenable. The head of government noted that some forces are trying to use the upcoming competitions to put pressure on the country. Golovchenko guaranteed the safety of athletes and fans.
The Ice Hockey World Championship is scheduled for Belarus and Latvia… The date of the tournament is from May 21 to June 6.
