Now about the rest.
Tyumen has made some changes to SAP arena design to accommodate it to the Russian "realias". Construction should start in 2013. Yes I know they told it a hundred times before, I can't wait for it myself.
VTB Arena is on track. They're doing some ground preparation works, laying down communications, finalizing the project and its cost, preserving the facade and stuff like that.
The project of 15000 seater in Nizhniy Novgorod will be shown on MIPIM 2013 in Cannes (12 – 15 March 2013).
The fate of Yekaterinburg and Novokuznetsk in KHL is uncertain, so I wouldn't get my hopes up unfortunately.
As for Kiev, what about it? it's not in KHL.
Oh, almost forgot, they plan to modernize Megasport in time for WC 2016. Rumors say it's because of some structural defects in roof. Officials deny it. Anyway hopefully they'll get rid of those horrible plastic seats and facelift the rest of the arena. It could end up looking more like Minsk-Arena.
