Dominik Hašek speaks out about Russia

The legendary Czech hockey goalkeeper Dominik Hašek has once again spoken in support of Ukraine and condemned Russia's military aggression against our country. The Nagano 98 Olympic champion noted that he will continue to remind the world of the terrorist state's crimes.

Gasquet said this in an interview with Voice of America. The two-time Stanley Cup winner emphasized that his pro-Ukrainian stance is in no way related to his desire to become a senator of the Czech parliament, and he also admired the defenders of our country, including many athletes.

"The fact that I criticize Russian aggression in Ukraine and admire the Ukrainian people and thank them for what they are doing for their country and for Europe has nothing to do with my career. I do this because I am convinced that Ukraine is doing the right thing and that the Russians are not only imperialists, but also terrorists who kill and commit crimes. And it's important to me that not only every hockey fan, whether in North America or Europe, but every person in the world knows this. For me, every Ukrainian athlete who defends and fights for the freedom of their country is a hero, I admire them, take off my hat and thank them," said Hašek.

It is worth noting that the Czech ex-goalkeeper has been a vocal supporter of Ukraine. After a trip to Kyiv and Kharkiv last summer, he recorded a video message to Ukrainians, wishing them to "drive away the Russian sh*t." In addition, Olympic champion Vyacheslav Fetisov threw a real tantrum over the Czech's remarks.

In addition, Dominik said that Russians have no right to compete in international tournaments "until they leave Ukraine and put Putin on trial." He also demanded that Russia pay reparations to our country.

As OBOZ.UA previously reported, two-time Olympic champion Oleksandr Kozhevnikov demanded that the Russian authorities put Dominik Hašek on the wanted list.
