Following the tragic news from Egypt, where a passenger plane flying from Sharm El Sheikh to Saint Petersburg crashed this morning with the loss of 224 lives, President of Russia Vladimir Putin has declared Sunday, the 1st of November, to be a national day of mourning. 


The Kontinental Hockey League expresses its sincerest condolences to the loved ones of the victims. There is to be a minute’s silence before both of Sunday’s games, Dynamo versus Spartak in Moscow and Medvescak versus Slovan in Zagreb, and the traditional pre-game show scheduled for the Moscow derby has been cancelled.
