The CSKA players visited the backstage of the Great Moscow Circus

As a child, everyone dreams of getting behind the scenes of the circus! Yesterday, the CSKA Hockey Club visited the Great Moscow State Circus at the Legend show. And immediately after the grandiose performance, the main director of the show and a devoted CSKA fan, Askold Zapashny, conducted an excursion for the CSKA players!

The CSKA players were able to feed an elephant, sea bears and even hold a monkey in their arms, as well as get acquainted with the most dangerous inhabitants of the circus — tigers and lions. The hockey players presented Askold Zapashny with a stick with the team's autographs.

Vladislav Kamenev, CSKA striker:
— Many thanks to Askold for the invitation and such an excursion. I think the children and even the adults were absolutely delighted. I've been to many circuses, like Cirque du Soleil, but this show is in no way inferior. Even better in some ways. We've been inside and seen how people treat animals with kindness. Excellent conditions have been created for the inhabitants of the circus. It's cool to be inside, we asked a lot of questions and got interesting answers. Emotions are the most positive.
