SKODA to not sponsor Ice Hockey World Cup in Minsk

“We’ve been a proud partner to the @IIHFHockey World Championship for 28 years. But we also respect & promote all human rights. Therefore, #SKODA will withdraw from sponsoring the 2021 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship if #Belarus is confirmed to be co-hosting the event,” SKODA announced on Twitter.

The day before, the same decision was announced by Nivea, which caused a wave of gratitude from Belarusians.
