CLEAN UP BEGINS: The club published a schedule of renovation works on its web site, which states the arena should be fully operable by late August, when the KHL's regular season is to begin. However, Donbass' future in the KHL remains uncertain given the situation in Eastern Ukraine, and the fire only exacerbated that uncertainty. "There is a probability that [the situation] in Donetsk will stabilize and it will be possible to hold hockey games in the city," KHL Managing Dir Dmitry Kurbatov was quoted as saying by news agency ITAR-TASS. "But there are also factors making it impossible to play there in September."
