St. PETERSBURG, 31 Jul - R-Sport, Taras Barabash. Penalties imposed by the U.S. against a member of the Board of Directors of the Continental hockey League (KHL), Roman Rotenberg, counterproductive, said the former head of the KHL, a member of the Board of Directors of the St. Petersburg hockey club SKA Alexander Medvedev.
U.S. authorities have imposed sentences about eleven physical and fifteen legal entities, including Vice-President of the St. Petersburg SKA, 1st Vice-President of Federation of hockey of Russia (FHR) and member of Board of Directors KHL Roman Rotenberg.
"we have League International, working in the former Soviet Union and European countries. For this reason, as far as I am aware, there are no restrictions in terms of movement around Europe, such punishment does not have the ability to do. Anyway, I think that to speak the language of punishment is unacceptable. The most when these penalties already apply to a range of people, don't understand what is the logic behind the imposition of these penalties. I think these punishments are counterproductive, " said Medvedev by telephone.
"most on the background of the efforts that our country is taking in resolving the situation in Ukraine. The impression that I want the worse The better. As soon as there are some gaps in provision, immediately beginning to catch up with the clouds, " - said Medvedev.
