Two-time Stanley Cup winner Hasek says IOC's decision will cost thousands of Ukrainian lives

Famous Czech ice hockey player Dominik Hasek commented on the International Olympic Committee's (IOC) decision to allow representatives of Russia and Belarus to participate in the 2024 Olympics in Paris under a neutral flag. The two-time Stanley Cup winner expressed confidence that "this decision will cost thousands, maybe millions of lost lives of Ukrainians and Russians"  on X (formerly Twitter).

"The IOC decision has given Russia incredible publicity for war and crimes, including genocide. The IOC has put human life above its own interests. Every person in the world who puts life first should condemn this," Hasek said.
