MOSCOW, August 26 (R-Sport) – A Russian Orthodox church to be built on the site of a future hockey complex in Yaroslavl will contain a memorial plaque dedicated to the 44 members of Lokomotiv Yaroslavl who lost their lives in a September 2011 plane crash, the KHL team’s press service told R-Sport on Monday.
The church, named for Yaroslav the Wise, an 11th-century prince and Yaroslavl’s namesake, will stand next to Lokomotiv’s new training facility and the national Olympic Hockey Talent Pool Reserve School.
A plaque listing the names of players, coaches and staff killed in the September 7, 2011, crash will lie somewhere inside the church.
Construction will start on the church sometime in the “near future,” the team’s press service said
