After appeals from the US Congress and German Parliament, European Union is now asking the IIHF to move the tournament to another country. Peter Šťastný is among the promoters of this movement. 14,000 people already have signed the petition at change.org and I hope that amount will be increased.
If someone didn't see what happened in Minsk on December 19th 2010 at the last elections here's the video:
Thousands of people were beaten down, hundreds were arrested, some of them are still in jail. And that ******* (he is ACTUALLY a ******* - no one knows who his father is) still rules the country for 18 years in a row and plays hockey with his very own hockey team.
Voting at change.org:
Sport isnt politic!!!!!
And by the way, Peter Šťastný is --- and I hope he will never work in Slovak hockey and will never work for Slovakia.
