"We must glorify": the former coach of the Ukrainian national team urged to always support Putin
Former head coach of the Ukrainian national team Andrei Nazarov called for stricter requirements for the work of foreigners in the Continental Hockey League (CHL). The Chelyabinsk native expressed confidence that representatives of the aggressor country should respect themselves and "always support the president.
This was stated by Nazarov in a commentary to Championship.com. The ex-coach of a number of KHL clubs spoke in favor of imposing the Russian language on foreigners, as well as with the idea of abandoning the Latin alphabet in the spelling of athletes' names on their equipment.
"It's still surprising that we give ourselves certain indulgences and, for example, don't fully ask foreigners. I remember when I was given an interpreter in the NHL for a couple of months and then had to learn English. It wasn't even a discussion! In the KHL foreign coaches don't learn Russian, and most foreign hockey players don't think it's necessary to learn it. Plus we write the names on the jerseys in Latin, not Cyrillic. All of this raises questions. As everyone has seen, we live in a very fragile world. We need to love our culture, glorify our language and always support the president," said the Russian.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, two-time Olympic champion Vyacheslav Fetisov fell into a real rage after the question of Russia's suspension from the World Hockey Championship and called the president of the international federation a moron.
