Mafia is very influential with rich people in Russia&Belarus (and Kostitsyn had been rich before ever playing hockey), so for someone from that place who just got here it didn't seem half bad to have ''good'' friends, perhaps they would even protect him.
So yeah, Kostitsyn was stupid and ignorant.
On the other hand I'm sure every 24 or 25 year old guys on this forum only do bright and intelligent stuff&never do mistakes...
I'm sure they wouldn't either if they went to live in a country were they can't speak with anyone.
I swear I'm blinded by halos when I come to read this forum. Luckily it helps blind me from the bull the media spews.
