As a result of the war of Russian President Vladimir Putin on the territory of Ukraine, the Continental Hockey League will undoubtedly experience a huge outflow of major foreign players. But there were those who could not resist to lure from the East and sign a contract with the KHL. They are now mostly criticized on social networks.

Rudolf Červený became the first Czech hockey player to hear Russian money bells. The Sport-Express server reported on Wednesday that the 32-year-old attacker agreed to engage with Vladivostok.
The former longtime player of České Budějovice and Hradec Králové, at the same time the owner of 26 national starting teams, has previously worked at the KHL in Slovan Bratislava and last season at Dinam Riga. Until the Latvian participants were removed from the competition due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Even before the start of the war, Czech defender Libor Šulák extended his contract in Vladivostok, another back Michal Jordán had already agreed with Khabarovsk. However, none of them has yet confirmed that they would like to return to Russia.
In recent weeks, Dmitry Yashkin has speculated about his return to the KHL.
