Alexander Lukashenko about team Belarus at 2017 Ice Hockey World Championship in France

After the official events in Victory Square in Minsk President Lukashenko met with journalists. Alexander Lukashenko spoke about the situation in the world today, about the development of the regions, the situation with Belarusian ice hockey and many other things.

Correspondent:
May is associated with ice hockey period as well. Ice World Championship is being held. How can you estimate team Belarus at this championship?

Alexander Lukashenko, President of the Republic of Belarus:
The way that team Belarus is playing the matches at the moment worries people a lot. We understand that Belarus played against the favorites of the championship. However, these favorites are not that great. If the aim is to win matches against equal four teams, I must say that it is necessary to fight for one point from any team at least. At the moment team Belarus plays outrageous matches. And the situation in ice hockey is so inadequate, that we have agreed to meet up with coaches and sportsmen after the championship and discuss what to do next.
