    sad news: Plushenko will have surgery in Israel, where will be replaced the intervertebral disc in his spine.

    http://en.rsport.ru/other_sports/201301 ... 75819.html
    “The recovery will last a long time, but not so much to set back his preparation for the (2013-14) season where the main competition will be the Olympics,” Mishin said.

    “Tomorrow, he will undergo the operation, but his preparation plans won’t be altered, because he’ll be able to walk and swim in four weeks’ time.”

    Please keep us posted on his surgery and recovery.

    At least he is getting the problem fixed. I hope he does not rush back to the ice and ruin any chances of his competing in Sochi. At this point I am not even sure that his body can handle the rigors of eligible competition. If he cannot compete, I am just grateful for the wonderful years of skating he gave us for so long.

    Shame on those who were criticizing him for withdrawing from the Euros LP. He must have skated the SP with unimaginable pain .:(

    Bionic Plushy may yet become a thing, it would seem.

    I hope he comes through it well and takes it slow back onto the ice!

    Dear Plushy fans!

    The Plushy's fans have an idea to make an action(flash mob)
    that everyone write a tweet to Plush with the same words :


    "Женя, мы с тобой! Выздоравливай! Мы тебя любим! / Zhenya, we are with you! We love you! Get well soon!"

    Tomorow (saturday) in 12am (Tel Aviv time), 11am (CET), 14h (Moscow time) send this message to Evgeni on his twitter https://twitter.com/EvgeniPlushenko !





    ______________________________

    Plushy's interview from the hospital
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXGH7bl3Hzo&feature=player_embedded

    TV girl: The famous Russian figure skater Evgeni Plushenko who had to withdraw from the European Championship in Zagreb, was operated in the clinic in Israel. Our correspondent could meet him a few hours after the surgery. Evgeni said that before and during EC he was in pain, didn' feel his legs and couldn't properly train.

    Plu: Now I am feeling like after the operation. Of course I feel some pain but in general I feel good. My attempt to skate at Euro was a risk. But I have always been a risky athlete who is going to his goal no matter how much it takes.

    TV girl: Now Plu and his team are thinking about Sochi, if he can compete there at the proper level.

    Doctor: I think with what spine I saw it's difficult to live, not to skate only. I think he is a person of a real will if he could skate with such pain. He had a severe distruction of his disk, but not the disk only. His intervertebral joints, connecting cords were all in awful conditions.

    TV girl: Usually people after such an operation can barely leave the bed. But Evgeni started walking.

    Plu (smiling happily): You see, they operated me yesterday, but today I can walk a little.

    TV girl: The detailed report from Israel' clinic see tomorrow in our News progs.

    interview with Brian Orser:
    only Plushy's part, I used google translater (I hope Tanyka will translate this.)


    Брайан Орсер: "С прошлого года я - фанат Плющенко"
    Brian Orser: "Since last year, I am a fan of Plushenko" :)
    ....

    - Have you seen performance in Zagreb Plushenko?
    - Yes, of course.

    - Are not you surprised by his decision to withdraw after the short program?
    - This is his and only his decision, I have no right to talk, it was correct or not. Plushenko - supertalant. And the fact that he is still willing and able to compete with much younger children, is admirable. What really surprised me in Zagreb - is his refusal to quadruple jump in the short program. Because Plushenko - unbeaten fighter. After that he made at the last European Championships in Sheffield, I became his fan. True. Remember thinking, OK, we have to admit he is a god figure skating, if he can fight like this. It was amazing! I did see him in training - such a calm, even relaxed. But Plushenko knows exactly how to get together when you go to the start. I know that he really wants to come to Sochi, and I can only wish him a full recovery and get in shape. Such men as he pushed all the other forward. This is for my students. They look at him with wide eyes. Besides Plushenko - the kind of person who surrounds the special aura they create around themselves a special atmosphere. And it's impossible to miss.

    .....

    :)Yes, Mr Orser, he is special.

    Johnny comments on Plushy (I did not know Johnny and Jana were so close):

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/sport...johnny-weir-aims-third-oympics-sochi/1898109/
    On Russian star Evgeni Plushenko, who had back surgery last week competing in Sochi: "Evgeni and I are fairly close. I get an email from his wife every week and he'll text. Evgeni is unlike anyone else I've seen in the sport. He fights until he's bleeding or crying every single day to be better. He's the surest thing about the Sochi Olympics. He will be there and he will be in shape. He will excite his home country audience. Whether he wins or not is a different story, but he will be there."

    Johnny was invited to every Plushy shows in spring, but the shows were cancelled, of course. Plushy doesn't like to write on his twitter and nowhere, so Jana writes to Johnny.. :)

    translating

    RT @EvgeniPlushenko:
    Here's a video which sent to me: http://youtube.com/watch?v=sapPTvStTeU
    Well, what can I say about it... I'm especially bitter, aware of the fact that Andrey Zhurankov @AZhurankov, pretending to the title of a sports journalist, which in itself should mean a certain level of professionalism, could understand all the mendacity which he told on Russian channel EUROSPORT 2 about me as a athlete and person, that is, he deliberately insulted my honor, dignity and reputation.
    Sport - it's my life. Sporting achievements in the name of the glory of Russia - this is my religion. For me, it's not just words, it is the essence of all that I did and do in the sport. Violating the code of ethics of the journalist, Zhurankov slandered and insulted not only me, than also my entire team, including a genius coach Alexei Mishin, wonderful assistants, my fans in Russia and around the world.
    Fact is so disgusting and transcends, that I'm not going to leave it just like that. In the end, there is a law, there is a court, in which I will defend my dignity of athlete and person.

    " Seven years ago Russia's Evgeni Plushenko beat world champion Stephane Lambiel of Switzerland by 27.12 points to win the gold medal in men's figure skating at the Winter Games in Turin, Italy. "

    Look at this video! The reporter said:

    "There is a world in which Evgeni Plushenko king and god. The boundaries of this world are not determined or St. Petersburg, Russia nor ......

    But ... it turns out that once again believe that we, the fans, journalists, as connected, in general, people have a right to Plushenko, what we have. Apparently, he had a different opinion - that he has ..." ( I used google translater :D)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9oaGyB-jB4s he is so cute and he is so beautiful on ice! In this video there is a good recording about his first wedding.

    bad quality video about his first wedding, but more than 385 000 viewers :)

    Finally

    http://fsrussia.ru/news/448_ot-federacii-figurnogo-kataniya-na-konkah-rossii-/

    From Russian Figure Skating Federation

    Admiring the courage of the outstanding figure skater Evgeni Plushenko, and his desire to perform at his fourth Olympics in Sochi in 2014, RFSF in every way promotes his early return to the ice.

    We consider speech of TV commentator A. Zhurankov, about state of Plushenko's health incorrect... We are fully on the side of Evgeni, in his desire to protect his honor and dignity.

    Always maintaining good relations with the media, RFSF will work only with journalists that do not violate professional ethics.

    New documentary about Zhenya and Yana.


    Zhenya and Yana: Gold for Love
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NS0v-9uFg70&feature=player_embedded
    some translating from let's talk http://evgeni-plushenko.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=6&start=2170

    Dr. Pekarski (from 38')

    Yesterday I had to scold him because last night he didn't take painkillers saying that the pain was not that strong enough.
    (to Plushenko) You don't have to feel scared because I had already cut you. I am not planning to do it again.
    (about Plu getting up from the bed) Yes, you may get up but you have to do it right way. What you did this morning wasn't right at all.
    (about the medicine that Pu is not enjoying) I am sure it's not the worst liquid that you have ever drunk in your life.
    I shall put the banner above your bed "Take the medicine on time!" If you don't feel pain, it doesn't mean that you shouldn't take pills.
    (about the X-ray and the operation) Here you can see the artificial disc and four screws that are supporting it. If the screw moves closer to the center, the person will be paralyzed. If it goes deeper, it will end up in the out that might cause the internal bleeding and death.

    Plu

    (from 02:30") Some people-bastards are writing that I internionally went to the cilnic just in order to cut my back while the operation on the disc itself has never happened.
    (12:13") (about his second son's birth day) I didn't go to the birth of my son, I didn't want to. I was present at my first son's birth. This time I didn't want to. I was ready to be nearby but not in the birth chamber. When I saw my son first, he was lying on Yana's breast, he was so tiny and cute.
    (16:20") (about his first son custody) I didn't want to lose my first son. I didn't want to see him only when I am "allowed to". That's not right.
    (22:40") (about Yana) Yana is cool! She is my best friend. I am very proud of my wife and I am grateful to God that he sent me such a brain-woman, such a faithful friend and my love.

    Mishin (24:25")

    (about Yana) I have been training Zhenya for almost 20 years. I've known a bunch of his women and girlfriends. I want to say that Yana is the most constructive woman in his life.

    Yana

    (22:22" + 23:36") (about Plu) He is a very sentimental and kind person. I have never met such a kind, honest, sincere and true person ever. Probably that's why God put me through all those terrible difficulties in my life that I could finally meet the person like Zhenya, as some kind of reward that I should have earned.... I not just love him, I adore him. He is the person who gave me a fairy-tale. The life that I am living in now is a fairy-tale. I have never thought that I would be so happy.
    (42') (about the baby) There was no single day that Zhenya didn't take part in bathing Sasha. He prepares the water, towels, bathes him and than diapers the baby carefully. That is a really touching picture to see. Sasha is a tiny copy of Zhenya... His family probably has very strong genes because his elder son Egor also looks like his father very much. Sasha is very quiet and not naughty at all. Probably he's gonna be an athlete too, like his father.
    (26') (about the custody of her adopted son from the first marriage) Starting from the last year, patronized at that momet by Baturin, the biological mother of Andrei tried to do her best in order to "return" Andrei to her. The Baturin's plan was she took Andrei, then she legally gives up her motherhood and Andrei gets put in the orphanage. After that Baturin would ask for a bail to get out of prison on the ground that the child Andrei was left alone without parents or any guardians. It's impossibe to make a more cynical plan to get free/out-of-jail card.

    Thank you for the translation! :)

    If Yana gets the stamp of approval from Mishin, she must be alright. ;)

    Sasha seems to be very treasured by both parents, especially because they each had custody problems with their older children. I don't quite understand the story about Yana's son, but it sounds awful.

    After divorce Yana fought with Baturin for the older sons. Yana is not Andrei's biological mother, Yana adopted him. Baturin had a previous marriage, Andrei is their son. Baturin is now in jail because of tax evasion.

    Moscow police rejected Plushenko's request against TV commentator Andrei Zhurankov http://rsport.ru/figure_skating/20130222/646931220.html … #figureskating

    "I still can not comment on it in any way. Now I'm not in Russia, back, will observe, and then we'll decide what to do," - said Plushenko to agency "F-Sport" on the phone.

    Perhaps you will have an imagine of what it feels like to be a fan of Plushenko..:)

    "I found Zhenya late, after Vancouver, later than many other luckier fans. It was too late, but also not too late. In the last few years he has taught me so much, about art, about tolerance, about strength, about courage, about love. He is on an unimaginably difficult road, perhaps no one knows where it will lead. Yet I feel—I don’t care how ridiculous this sounds to more “objective” people—that it is a privilege for me to see him, and to share, no matter in how small a way, how distantly, how vicariously, that road."

    Police Reopen Plushenko Slander Probe

    MOSCOW, February 27 (R-Sport) - Russian police said Wednesday they had reopened a slander investigation into claims figure skating champion Evgeni Plushenko faked a recent injury.

    Plushenko withdrew from the European championships in Zagreb last month because of injury after finishing sixth in the short program, and his coach Alexei Mishin said the skater had undergone a back disc replacement at a clinic in Israel.

    Earlier this month, Eurosport commentator Andrei Zhurankov said on air that Plushenko had faked the surgery for public relations purposes, prompting Plushenko to file a slander complaint to police.

    Last week Moscow police dropped the case, citing a lack of evidence a crime was committed, but the investigation will now resume after a request from prosecutors.

    “After the return of documents from the prosecutors’ office, the management of the investigative organization of the Moscow central police directorate will conduct an additional inspection of Plushenko’s complaint,” a statement from the police said.

    A source in the prosecutor’s office told R-Sport’s sister agency RAPSI that “psychological-linguistic expertise” would be deployed in the renewed investigation.

    Police said last week that specialized linguistic analysis in the original investigation of Zhurankov’s comments had not found evidence of a crime.

    Plushenko has been publicly supported in his case by the Russian Figure Skating Federation, which branded the commentator's statement "inappropriate."

    Defamation has been a criminal offence in Russia since July, when President Vladimir Putin reversed its decriminalization in December 2012 by then-President Dmitry Medvedev.

    The offence carries a maximum fine of five million rubles ($165,000).

    Allegations that Plushenko's back injury was faked had earlier surfaced in unsourced reports in the Israeli media last month. At the time, Plushenko's wife denounced the Israeli claims and posted photographs on the Internet of her husband lying in a hospital bed.
