On Monday, January 18, Martin Vokálek, deputy director of the EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy, was a guest on the broadcast of Radio Z. He commented on the current controversy surrounding the possibility of Belarus hosting the Ice Hockey Championship.
#Belarus #ice hockey championship #Lukashenko
Hosting the Ice Hockey Championship is an opportunity for Lukashenko to present the Belarussian regime as a country that is capable of practicing such advanced activities. The current official sanctions are reinforced by voluntary activities of private subjects, such as the car-manufacturer Škoda Auto which decided not to sponsor the championship in case of Belarussian hosting.
