“People in our country have woken up and they are worried about it [the environment]”Said Viacheslav Fetisov, a Hockey Hall of Famer and the Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Environment Program. “But what we also do not need is to engage in extremism.”
Along with Fetisov, the Baikal game featured former Russian hockey stars Valeri Kamensky and Alexei Kasatonov. Other notable guests included British and Portuguese diplomats as well as local officials. Fetisov’s team won.
“I think this was the best game of my career,” he said with a laugh. “Most importantly, the course was made with love.”
