The publishing house Belarusian Encyclopedia releases an encyclopedia of the Belarusian ice hockey.
The presentation will take place on February 5 at the 21st Minsk International Book Fair. The encyclopedia, prepared in close cooperation with the Belarusian Ice Hockey Federation, is dedicated to the 20th anniversary of ice hockey in Belarus and will be timed to the 2014 IIHF World Championship due in Minsk in May, Nasha Niva writes.
According to the state-run publishing house, ice hockey began to develop in Belarus only in 1994, when Lukashenka came to power. The authors seem to forget about previous achievements of Belarusian sportsmen.
The publishing house Belarusian Encyclopedia is funded by the Ministry of Information.
