Myasnikovich: No boycott, everyone will come to hockey championship
"The Olympic principle has outweighed unconstructive and timeserving appeals,” Myasnikovich said at the meeting of Belarus' Security Council.
The West urged to boycott the championship due to the existence of political prisoners in Belarus. However, all this blackmail and attempts have failed, Alyaksandr Lukashenka claimed earlier today.
Besides the hosting Team Belarus, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Canada, Slovakia, Norway, Denmark, France, Italy, Finland, Russia, the USA, Switzerland, Germany, Latvia and Kazakhstan will take part in the world championship that will start on May 9.
