This makes $ 9 down to $ 6 thousand in currency equivalent.

However, only Zhlobin ice hockey club 'Metallurg' paid such salaries to the players. Pressball writes about the high salaries of the Belarusian hockey-players.

According to the newspaper, the decrease of salaries in sports clubs reached 40% this year. It affected even the clubs that are capable of defining salaries by themselves, like BATE FC, or Dynama Hockey Club and Handball Club.

If we let along elite clubs, we'll see that the average wages of sportsmen around the country look mush more modest today. Players of main squads earn approximately Br 11.7 million, coaches - Br 8 million, directors - Br 10.4 million per month.
