It is reported that the main problem is whether there will be a replacement for Belarus, since Latvia will not be able to host the tournament, it cannot be held in Russia, and there has not been any contact with other countries yet.

The Latvian authorities have already announced that they will not hold the World Cup together with Belarus due to the political crisis in their respective countries.

In turn, the Ice Hockey Federation of Belarus claimed that the country is ready to host the tournament on its own.

The Ice Hockey World Championship is due to be held in Riga and Minsk from May 21 to June 6, 2021.
