Athletistic/Hockey. Today, January 11, it became known that the IIHF suspended the Israeli national hockey team. At the same time, the corresponding sanction has been in force against the Russian national team for almost two years. Many believe this decision has political reasons. However, IIHF President Luc Tardif has a different view.

– The IIHF does not compare the two political situations, we do not consider these situations from a political point of view. The only question is whether we, the IIHF and the organizers, can guarantee the safety of our competitions,” TASS quoted Tardif as saying.
