We don’t want an advertisement for Russian aggression here, Hašek said. The ministry is already negotiating with the NHL

Former hockey goalie Dominik Hašek agreed with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which sent an official letter to NHL commissioner Gary Betttman and his deputy Bill Daly. It was also created on the basis of negotiations with a Czech sports icon, whose name the Russians cannot come up with after the invasion of Ukraine. In the letter, the resort expresses its belief that it is not in the Czech Republic’s interest for Russian players to enter Czech territory and play the matches scheduled for October 7 and 8. “We don’t want an advertisement for Russian aggression here,” the goalkeeper superstar said of their decision.

Dominik Hašek, a prominent opponent of Russian aggression in Ukraine and supporter of global punishment for Russians and Russian athletes, published information that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent an official letter to the leadership of the NHL, in which it clearly stands against Russian hockey players who play in the most famous competition in the world and should introduce themselves in October matches in the Czech O2 arena.

Last week the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic sent an official letter to NHL management Gary Bettman and Bill Daly, that it is not in the interest of the Czech Republic for Russian players to enter our territory and play matches here on October 7 and 8,” wrote the former goalkeeper on his twitter. It was he who set things in motion and began to negotiate with the ministry to do something about this matter.

He then acknowledged the department’s decision. He himself would definitely not like it if the Russians joined here, which he made clear several times. “Nwe want an advertisement for Russian aggression here. We protect our lives and the lives of our allies first,” said the fifty-seven-year-old icon of Czech hockey.

​In the Nashville team, possible complications with the impossibility of the Russians entering the Czech territory should affect Yakov Trenin, Yegor Afanasyev and Jaroslav Askarov, for San Jose it would affect Alexander Barabanov and Yevgeniy Svechnikov, Danil Gušchin, Timur Ibragimov, Artemiy Kňazev and Nikolaj Knižov . Both clubs have rights to a total of eight other Russians and could add them to their squads.

Hašek recently said that he does not want Russian players in the Czech Republic:
