The region of Zlín, south Moravia, represented by Governor Stanislav Mišák and the governor of the Yaroslavl oblast in Russia, Sergei Yastrebov, signed an agreement on Friday promising close cooperation in the future. The move coincided with a memorial hockey game between Zlín and Yaroslavl honouring members of the team and others killed in last year’s Lokomotiv Jaroslavl air disaster. The crash claimed the lives of 44 people, including three Czech players. One of them, Karel Rachůnek, was a Zlín native. Areas where the regions of Zlín and Yaroslavl could cooperate in the future include tourism, the spa business, agriculture, industry, and job creation.
