IIHF Congress will look into the matter in May, as Polish Radio website learned on Wednesday. Former President of European Parliament, Jerzy Buzek reminded that after the rigged elections in Belarus in December 2010, he appealed to the International Ice Hockey Federation to relocate hockey championship from Belarus, unless the authorities release political prisoners and stop repressions against the civil society.

 “World Championship should be the feast of fairness, justice and fair play. These values ​​are constantly violated by Lukashenka regime. The current situation in Belarus has nothing to do with the feast. The championships in Belarus would be just like  partying in the time of mourning”,  Jerzy Buzek commented.

 IIHF spokesman Szymon Szemberg told  Polish Radio website that the issue of ice hockey world championship in 2014, which is to be held in Belarus, was included in the agenda of the Congress of the International Ice Hockey Federation, which takes place on17-20 May in Helsinki. Delegates may decide to transfer to another country championships.
