Russian Hockey Stars Raise Climate Awareness in Lake Baikal Match

On March 8, Russian hockey superstars held a match on Siberia's freezing Lake Baikal to raise climate change awareness.
The match, aptly called "The Last Game," featured famous players such as Viacheslav Fetisov, Valery Kamensky and Alexei Kasatonov.
While the Russian government sponsored the match, it has also recently rolled back environmental regulations protecting the lake's already at-risk ecosystem.
