Polish and Belarusian air forces will carry out a joint exercise in Poland's southern city of Krakow on Wednesday in preparation for the 2021 IIHF World Ice Hockey Championship to be held in Belarus and Latvia and the 2023 European Games to be held in Krakow.

This year’s event, which runs from 4 to 7 September, will feature over 600 exhibits, more than half of which will be from Poland. Delegations from 31 other countries will also be in attendance.
