Hasek bashes Putin and makes disturbing remarks about the situation in Ukraine

Published February 26, 2022 at 10:39

Hasek's dramatic statements appeared to be a response to recent comments made by Alex Ovechkin, possibly the NHL's most prominent Russian athlete. Here is Hasek's full statement, unedited:

''What!? Not only an alibist, a chicken shit, but also a liar! Every adult in Europe knows well, that Putin is a mad killer and that Russia is waging an offensive war against the free country and its people. The NHL must immediately suspend contracts.

The NHL must immediately suspend contracts for all Russian players! Every athlete represents not only himself and his club, but also his country and its values and actions. That is a fact. If the NHL does not do so, it has indirect co-responsibility for the dead in Ukraine.

I also want to write, that I am very sorry for those Russian athletes, who condemn V. Putin and his Russian aggression in Ukraine. However, at the moment I also consider their exclusion a necessity.''
