Kozhevnikov speaks out about sanctions

Two-time Olympic champion Alexander Kozhevnikov has issued a logic-rich rant about Russia's new suspension from international hockey competitions. The former USSR national team forward called the decision political, and with the words "we will never be slaves" called on his compatriots to "endure and wait" for the lifting of sanctions.

Kozhevnikov, who became a confidant of dictator Vladimir Putin in the so-called presidential election this spring, said this in an interview with the R-Sport propaganda news agency. The winner of the Sarajevo '84 and Calgary '88 Games insulted the leaders of the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF), calling them scoundrels who are biased against representatives of the aggressor country.

"We have to be patient and wait. This decision is pure politics, pure conspiracy. They are scoundrels. They mixed the purest things in sports with politics. What they laid down as the basis for the development of sports, they have already violated. But we will never be slaves, it is not in the blood of the Russian people. So we have nowhere to go - we will win," Kozhevnikov said in a patriotic frenzy.

These words caused a fit of laughter among the readers of the Sports.ru portal. They pointed out the illogicality of the former hockey player's words. "To endure and wait is actually a state of slavery", "The inclusion of the motto "endure and wait" in the Constitution of the Russian Federation is being considered. This is one of the foundations of power in Russia", "We will not be slaves, but we must endure and wait", "Stop my screaming, I will suffocate", - they write in the comments.

Earlier, former Russian hockey player Danis Zaripov called his appointment as Vladimir Putin's confidant in the "2024 elections" the main achievement of his career.

As OBOZ.UA previously reported, the famous hockey coach Andrei Nazarov, in a patriotic frenzy, made another absurd statement about the greatness of Russia, which is allegedly envied in European countries.
