General Director of “Salavat Yulaev” Alexander Kurnosov commented on the decision of KHL to finish ahead of the current season.
“The League took the decision to terminate the championship. All are aware that the health of our countrymen is more important than determining the winner of the Gagarin Cup. To continue playing without the “Jokerit” and “Barys” is incorrect and by a sports principle.
In addition, we said from the beginning that playing without fans in the stands not quite correct, especially in the playoffs. Thank you all for the support! We will return in the new season even stronger. Take care of yourself and your loved ones”, — quotes the Ministry of culture press-service of the Ufa club.
