MEP launches new initiative on removal 2014 Hockey Championship from Minsk

Next week a session of the International Ice Hockey Federation is to be held in Stockholm where the question of transferring the 2014 World Championship may be taken out of freeze.

Polish MEP Marek Migalski who initiated the campaign in 2012 is eager to jump the opportunity to address the federation’s president Rene Fasel again. Migalski’s office and Östgruppen (Sweden) intend to picket the IIHF office in Stockholm on May, 18. According to Mr Migalski, Europe’s last dictatorship should not become a venue for such big sporting events.

The organizers are acting under the motto “Lukashenka, Puck you!” and invite all interested to join their Facebook group and sign the petition against hosting the Championship in Minsk.
