"Fleas, bugs, husks": Russian Olympic champion insults Ukraine's "stinking" allies over the Ice Hockey World Cup
Two-time Olympic champion Alexander Kozhevnikov issued a new batch of ethnic insults after the decision of the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) to exclude Russia from the 2024 World Cup. The former USSR national team player spoke dismissively of Latvians, Finns, Czechs and Swedes and called the World Cup without a team from the aggressor country a backyard event.
Kozhevnikov stated this in a comment for Championship.com. He added that the main ideologists of the extension of sanctions against Russian hockey players are allegedly the European allies of Ukraine, while functionaries from North America, on the contrary, are in favor of the return of Russia.
"A World Cup without the Russian national team is a backyard championship. Did the Latvians rock the boat too? This is nothing at all, who are they? Nobody listens to this husk. Finns, Swedes, Czechs - that's who the main pranksters are. But they are also fleas and bugs, they mean nothing. They have been pressured, and they stink. Canadians and the US are more loyal in this regard. However, politics plays a big role in America. Without Russia, no international sports tournaments matter. Our guys need to stand up and survive this. All men, everyone understands everything," Kozhevnikov said.
Earlier, Olympic biathlon champion Alexander Tikhonov said that Russian hockey will return to international tournaments after "winning the war."
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, legendary hockey goalie Vladislav Tretiak expressed outrage at Russia's suspension from international competitions, saying that in his country "not a single Ukrainian was touched."
