The Russian national hockey team decided to hold the Euro Tour match against the Finnish team in the form of the USSR. However, besides the frightening form of the USSR times, the Russian team could not oppose anything to the Finnish national team, and as a result lost with the score 3: 0.
Coming out for the first period in a retro-form with the inscription “USSR” on the chest, the Russian national hockey team was not able to oppose the Finns in Tampere in the Euro tour match, losing 0: 3 (0: 0, 1: 0, 2: 0). Washers were thrown by Tommy Huhtala (26th minute), Sami Lepisto (59) and Petri Kontiola (60, into the empty net). The Finnish national team scored 13 points and overtook the Russian team in second place overall, which suffered a third defeat in a row.
The match took place in the arena "Khakametsa", which was opened 50 years ago. Note that the first game on its ice took place between the national teams of the USSR and Finland.
In honor of this event, the first period of the team played in retro. Russian athletes took to the ice in sweaters with the inscription USSR on the chest. The remaining two periods passed in the usual way. In the Hockey Federation of the Russian Federation, they commented on the output of the national team in the Soviet form as follows: "Our guys came to the match in retro-uniform - red jersey with the USSR inscription.

UPD: 04/17/2015 Putin changed the rhetoric against Ukraine and for the first time criticized Yanukovych, - Rzeczpospolita
For four hours in a row, Russian President Vladimir Putin answered questions about the Russian economy, although he managed to make some significant confessions and statements. In particular, he first criticized the government of Viktor Yanukovych.
According to the League, the Polish edition of Rzeczpospolita writes about this, analyzing the statements of the Russian president.
The observer notes that Putin criticized the Ukrainian ex-president loyal to Russia without directly telling his name when he listed the reasons why, in his opinion, the Maidan occurred in Kiev. “People in Ukraine have suffered enough from poverty, theft, rudeness, unlimited greed of the government and its representatives, the oligarchs who came to power and occupied positions in the authorities,” Putin said, hinting at the team of the former Ukrainian president, who with his support twice became the head of Ukraine and was twice dismissed from the post during the revolution.
Now, Yanukovych lives in the suburbs of Moscow in a luxury residence and does not conduct any political activities, while in eastern Ukraine a shaky truce continues in the war.
Earlier it was reported that Putin during a press conference, said that the Russian Federation will seek to restore relations with Ukraine. He listed his conditions for "reconciliation with Ukraine." In particular, he wants to set up committees that will deal with political reform, as well as economic and border issues.
UPD: 04/17/2015 British fishermen have announced the collision of their trawler with a Russian submarine
British fishermen reported a possible collision between a British trawler and a Russian submarine in the Irish Sea.
This is reported by the Russian service of the Air Force.
The crew of the fishing vessel reported that on Wednesday an unknown underwater object caught the trawl and dragged the vessel towards the Isle of Man.
According to the head of the Northern Ireland Fishermen Association, Dick James, it is possible that this is a Russian submarine that was following the NATO naval exercises off the coast of Scotland.
The British Department of Defense declined to comment on these allegations.
According to James, fishing boats often catch submarines with their nets. If it were a British submarine, it would have to stop and surface to ensure the safety of the fishermen.
"Skipper Paul Murphy says he waited for 10 minutes for the submarine to emerge," added Dick James.
According to the skipper, the crew was busy catching shrimp near the Isle of Man on Wednesday afternoon when the incident occurred. The fishermen thought that the ship would certainly turn over, and they thought they were lucky. For ten minutes the trawler was moving astern, carried away by a trawl that had been captured by a submarine. As the skipper says, this unusual trajectory of the vessel’s movement is fixed by three onboard global positioning systems. Trawler "Karen" received serious damage to the hull, and its repair can cost 10 thousand pounds.
The British authorities do not comment on this incident, but Tim Ripley, who collaborates with the well-known military magazine Jane's Defense, believes that the assumptions about the involvement of the Russian Navy in the incident are quite reasonable. “The Royal Navy seems to say that the submarine is not theirs. It also speaks on behalf of NATO, as it coordinates the movement of all the Allied submarines in British territorial waters,” says Ripley.
“If it’s not British or American, you should look east. Maneuvers take place in these waters in recent days. And the Russians are known to like to watch such exercises, and therefore there is a high probability that they sent one of their submarines to the area of maneuvers, "he concludes.
