The honorary coach of the USSR in figure skating, Tatyana Tarasova, criticized the decision of the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) to exclude Russia from the number of participants in the world championship.

“What kind of hockey can it be without Russia? There are only a dozen countries in the world that practice this sport”, Sport24 quotes Tarasova.

According to her, the Russian national ice hockey team is the world leader. “The World Cup without the Russian team is kind of non-hockey,” she believes.

In late February, the IIHF suspended Russia and Belarus from participating in all international tournaments under its auspices, including the 2022 World Championships.

The Ice Hockey World Championship takes place from May 13 to 29 in Tampere and Helsinki. Instead of Russia and Belarus, the national teams of Austria and France participate in the tournament.
