Privet. Minja zavot Jan Fleischmann. Ja eta balsjoia interesna Russia icehockey. And I have also recently made with a friend a book in Swedish language about snow leopard. The few wild photos of the cat I have taken in Himalaya.
In my second book “Levande vildmark” from 2004 I have made a chapter from Vladivostok
and an Amur tiger project.
In my third book also in Swedish it is about the other four big cats, Jaguar Tiger Lejon Leopard is the title. Gave this as a present to the former Brasilian football player Pelé as the jaguar on the cover is from his country.
I have also sometimes taken photos when Sovjet and Russia played international games in Sweden such as from the World Cup 1989. I have a few photos of players like Igor Larionov, Sergey Fedorov, Sergey Makarov, Vladimir Krutov, Vjatjeslav Fetisov and young Alexander Owechkin, and also young Evgenij Malkin, Ilya Kowalchuk and pressconference with Viktor Tichonov.
There used to be a team called the Amur tigers. Does anyone know if this team still exist?
Hello, and thank you for your comment! I do not know why it is not appearing at the site just yet, but I will see what I can do.
Amur Tigers still do exist – they play in the Russian junior league right now, although they are not having a very good season, unfortunately. Amur, the KHL team, are one of my favourites, I have to say.
I am very interested in seeing some of your photos, both of big cats and of Russian hockey players! 🙂 Do let me know if this is possible – you can e-mail me at email@example.com.
Ah, I see your comment on the site now! 🙂

Thank you Leonardo! I’m always glad to find more KHL fans – it is indeed a very interesting league, with some extremely good players and an entertaining brand of hockey.
Have you settled on a favourite KHL team? Mine has to be Amur Khabarovsk, I think, although I’m also fond of some others. I don’t think there’s any team that I really dislike…
And thank you for the good wishes about the Oilers – they need all the help they can get! 😀
Boa noite Leonardo. It is nice to hear from you as I not only like Russian icehockey but also Brazil football and more particularly your unique natuer and wild animals. I have been many times in Pantanal and made photostories and books about the jaguar. I plan next Winter to visit Khabarovks. Regarding Russian ichehockey I have followed it since Young ages and with my cameras covered World cup 1989 and some other tournaments.
I have made books about the big cats in my lyrics Swedish and one has the jaguar from Pantanal on the front. This book was given to Pelé when he visited Sweden one time.
One other book has story of a rescueproject for the Amur tiger and from Vladivostok. The latest describe the snow leopard from adventures in Central Asia and threats to the cat,
the people in the mountains in India and Pakistan, and the Buddhists Connection to the cat.
