It's not a commercial enterprise, it has never been planned to become a commercial enterprise, and it's never going to become a commercial enterprise.
It's a political project that's funded almost in its entirety by Russian state funds, and, basically, it's a part of the Russian foreign policy doctrine.
Except that almost 25% are located outside the Russian Federation, and that there is no federal money in any of the KHL. Just a small amount of teams that have help from provincial funds. Part of which goes to youth schools.
Intense perspective tho
