It is said in the statement which was published on the website minsk2014.no.

'To hold the 2014 IIHF World Championship in Belarus would support and legitimatise a regime which violates the human rights of the people of Belarus in an alarming way.

I urge you as president of the IIHF to support the victims of human rights violations by removing the 2014 IIHF World Championship from Belarus,' - said in the postcard.
