“Capital handsome”: what they write in Russia about the scandal with Provorov in the USA

Russian hockey player Ivan Provorov refuses to participate in a rally in support of LGBT

MOSCOW, January 18 – /strong>. The Russian defender of the NHL Philadelphia Flyers club Ivan Provorov did not go to the reel before the match against the Anaheim Ducks.
It turned out that the domestic athlete refused to participate in the action in support of sexual minorities. The fact is that the Philadelphia hockey players took to the ice in special sweaters with designations in support of the LGBT community. The Russian, citing religious beliefs, remained in the locker room – Provorov took part in the match, spending 22 minutes and 45 seconds on the ice and finishing the meeting with a +1 utility indicator.
