A well-known Moscow club helped terrorists fighting in Ukraine and confirmed its "participation in genocide"
The Moscow hockey club CSKA is helping the terrorist battalion Espanyol. The military unit, made up of fans of various Russian clubs, has illegally invaded the territory of Ukraine and is killing Ukrainians. As a sign of support and solidarity with the Russian war criminals, the club presented them with a minibus.
"The inscription on the car reads: 'Our goal is victory'. The battalion is currently performing combat missions in the area of the special military operation," the website of the 'army' team said.
The Espanyol terrorists responded by thanking CSKA President Igor Esmanovich and the entire club staff: "Guys, we are very glad that you remember us. With your help, we will bring the victory closer! We also want to congratulate you on winning the Gagarin Cup. CSKA will always be the first!"
"In Russia, there is no such thing as 'sport outside politics'. Russian sport is actively involved in the genocide of Ukrainians. Terrorists should be isolated from international sport," said Vladyslav Geraskevych, a well-known Ukrainian skeleton athlete, in response to the actions of CSKA management.
But it's one thing to deliver buses and quite another to risk your life at the front. In Russia, a titled hockey player was arrested for evading mobilisation. Vladislav Grigoriev, a multiple winner of the title of top scorer in youth hockey tournaments in Russia, was detained in Moscow, where he was living, hiding from law enforcement.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, a high-profile scandal in world hockey erupted over CSKA Moscow goalkeeper Ivan Fedotov.
The 26-year-old vice-champion of the 2022 Olympics was forcibly drafted into military service last July.
In a recent interview, Fedotov admitted that he was literally counting down the days until he could demobilise from the Russian army.
