Olympic dancer opens iconic Red Square ice rink

The rink is a seasonal addition to the famed location and has delighted skaters every winter since 2005.

President Vladimir Putin plays hockey games at the rink near Kremlin almost every winter.

Due to a built-in cooling system, the ice rink can still hold ice even if the temperature rises above zero degrees celsius.

It is expected to be open for visitors until the spring, but has limitations for capacity due to the coronavirus pandemic.
