Svyatlana Tsikhanouskaya eager to move IIHF World Championship from Minsk

She met with the head of the Latvian Foreign Ministry.

At a meeting with Edgars Rinkēvičs, Svyatlana Tsikhanouskaya said that “most countries do not want to participate in Lukashenka’s political show”. According to her, as long as there are still more than 160 political prisoners in Belarus, even talking about sports festivals is out of the question.

Previously, Prime Minister of Finland Sanna Marin, vice-president of the IIHF Kalervo Kummola, head of the Danish Hockey Union Ulrik Larsen, as well as members of the U.S. Congress and the German Bundestag called for a boycott or postponement of the World Hockey Cup.
