Representative of the "Volat" hockey club: "The beauty of Ashgabat sets us up for a positive game"

The second competitive day of the international hockey tournament in Ashgabat was just as spectacular. Today, the hockey clubs "Volat" (Belarus) and "Team-Turkiye" (Turkey) faced off on the ice rink of the Winter Sports Complex.

The match was attended by Vyacheslav Beskosty, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Belarus to Turkmenistan. In a short interview with our publication, he noted:

"I came to support the Belarusian team. Group "B", in which they are represented, is very strong. And today, the guys made a good start with their victory. I wish all the teams good luck in the tournament".

It is worth noting that the hockey club "Volat" is participating in an international tournament for the first time, and according to team representatives, it is a great honor for the hockey players to perform on the ice rink in Ashgabat.

"This is our first time in Turkmenistan. Ashgabat is a very bright and clean city. The beauty that surrounds us sets us up for a positive game. After the successful match for us, we plan to visit the new city of Arkadag and also see the legendary Akhal-Teke horses," says Evgeny Posled, a representative of the "Volat" hockey club.

Defender Dmitry Shapovalov shared his impressions of the capital of Turkmenistan:
