English is a lingua franca. Most people will understand it. And far more people in Russia know how to read latin letters than people in the rest of the world know to read cyrillic letters. I don't see how this can affect Russian culture if the KHL wants that people around the world are able to follow the league...
If you are so angry about using Latin letters. Why do Russian football teams use them in international competitions? Why does the Russian ice hockey national team use them? Hey, Chinese and Koreans should also use their own letters in any international competition.... And news about Lev Praha should only be in Czech, news about Dinamo Riga only in Latvian....
