Mikhail-Balandin

Today, September 7, we remember. We remember the players and staff of Lokomotiv Yaroslavl, who all left this earth too soon when their flight from Yaroslavl to Belarus crashed. 

We remember the players, who were on their way to start their season. We remember Vitaly Anikeyenko, Mikhail Balandin, Gennady Churilov, Pavol Demitra, Robert Dietrich, Alexander Galimov, Marat Kalimulin, Alexander Kalyanin, Andrei Kiryukhin, Nikita Klyukin, Stefan Liv, Jan Marek, Sergei Ostapchuk, Karel Rachůnek, Ruslan Salei, Maxim Shuvalov, Kārlis Skrastiņš, Pavel Snurnitsyn, Daniil Sobchenko, Ivan Tkachenko, Pavel Trakhanov, Yuri Urychev, Josef Vašíček, Alexander Vasyunov, Alexander Vyukhin, and Artem Yarchuk.

And we remember the team staff. We remember Yuri Bakhvalov, Aleksandr Belyaev, Alexander Karpovtsev, Igor Korolev, Nikolai Krivonosov, Yevgeni Kunnov, Vyacheslav Kuznetsov, Brad McCrimmon, Vladimir Piskunov, Yevgeni Sidorov, and Andrei Zimin. 

Rest easy, boys, and know that we will never forget.
