Ice hockey: Dinamo Minsk's budget cuts amount to several million dollars


This year, the budget of Dinamo hockey team in Minsk was reduced by half compared to last season, club general director Dzmitry Baskau said at a press conference on July 8. In April, Alyaksandr Lukashenka said that the team had been annually "wasting" $15 million. If this is a real figure, the budget of Dynamo is now about $10 million.

According to Baskau, the salary fund of the club has been halved. "Therefore, the main thing now is to work according to the optimal "price-quality" formula, "Pressball" quotes the words of General Director.

Next season, the legionary formula will be "4+1," but it may change.

"Alyaksandr Lukashenka closely monitors all the changes before the start of the new season," said Dzmitry Baskau.
