OT: War in Russia/Georgia effect KHL

Obviously hockey is not the priority when war breaks out, but what effect do these events in Russia/Georgia have on any of the KHL teams?

Do any of these teams actually have to play/ fly over this area of the country?

Will this deter players from signing with KHL teams?

I know we have some Russian Ranger fans. I know a handful of these teams but my Russian geography knowledge is not so great.

Here's a Google map with the KHL teams marked. George is the small country in the bottom, center of the map. Zoom out to see the rest of the KHL teams.

Closest one is probably Lada Togliatti and Togliatti is very very far from Georgia.

No, but you should probably relocate this joke for the time being.

Wow, those must be some epic travel costs from Amur Khabarovsk.
