There will be no decent hockey under this system in Belarus.
Sports columnist Aliaksandr Putsila believes that the main pain point of the Belarusian hockey is that it is controlled by Aliaksandr Lukashenka, and not specialists.
"Belarusians in hockey are suffering. Apparently, they suffer because they are forced to play hockey, – Aliaksandr Putsila told Belsat. – There will be no decent hockey in this country – well, it's not our kind of sport."
The sports columnist is sure that Lukashenka will still invest in hockey, since for him this is an ideology.
Putsila is sure that all the problems of the Belarusian hockey turn up because of the state pressure. "There will be no hockey under this system," – he says.
