    I can confirm this.

    Not exactly.

    The way I heard it (and from a very realiable source) the RUS Federation does not have much to do with Morozov's relocation. It was arranged by the Figure Skating Federation of the city of Moscow which has a pretty powerful president.

    Many of you ladies here frowning upon Morozov's history may not be able to resist his charm, whatever it is, if he wants to make a move on you.

    The people I know just said "Federation". I wouldn't have known enough to ask if they meant Moscow v. Russia, not knowing that Moscow had one. All I know is what he got.

    Intensive preparations to avoid an embarrassing showing in Sochi -- Vancouver results were the wake-up call.

    After the Vancouver fiasco and with Sochi in sights, I guess more money is going to be channelled now.

    The local bodies are very powerful.

    The best local skaters get decent accomodation for free from the Moscow municipality, for example.

    I hope that lovely Victoria is smart enough to stay as far as possible from Morozov. After all, she is blonde and very pretty - I am seriously worried for the girl!

    Did they bring him in to coach or just choreograph or both?

    I don't think he'd relocate all the way to Moscow just to choreograph.

    Morozov's students must really like him to actually relocate with him to a completely foreign country with a complete foreign languages.

    Maybe they are getting some incentives, too.

    That's possible.. but I don't think it's likely though.. since he has no trouble getting students..

    They are all young people and it's a kind of normal in figure skating to relocate so I don't think it was a big question for them.

    I don't think it's kind of normal for figure skaters to relocate to an entirely different country mid-training with a coach, is it? Now moving to an entirely different country to train with a renowned coach, that's a bit more common.

    This is sort of a testament to Morosov, isn't it?

    Is it certain which of his non-Russian students are moving to Moscow with him?

    Miki confirmed that she was relocating to Moscow when the news first broke about his plans to relocate.

    Can anyone say in general what Morosov is actually getting to make the big move back home?

    Money. It was already said above.

    Plus as you can imagine most people prefer living home, in their own culture, around people they know, etc.
