We all know that the Soviet Union was always a big ice hockey nation, competing with Canada for the title of #1 in the world. But…was it REALLY always? What if I told you that before WW2 ice hockey was not considered an actual sport, that the first hockey exhibition tournaments were utter failures and the game simply was considered to be “too primitive” by the audience? How did the government manage to change that attitude? How did the Czechoslovak team basically “assemble” the famed Red Machine and ended up paying the price for it? Today we will take a look at the rise and fall of the “unbeatable” Soviet Hockey Team and discuss the state of the game in Russia today, after Vladimir Putin found himself irresistibly attracted to hockey.

Hey there. Somehow you found my video and decided to watch it. So let me introduce myself. I’m Sergei and I’m from Russia. My channel is about my native country. I want to tell English-speaking viewers about the real Russia, about its past and present. Unfortunately, you can find a lot of propaganda about Russia on the Internet, both from the Russian media and from the Western ones. I want to tell you about Russia, as it really is, the country in which I was born, grew up, and lived all my life.
