What do people mean about Stanislav not being a trained coach? I know a lot of the Russian skaters go to sports school to get some kind of certificate... not sure if there were such schools in Ukraine where V&M trained. But my understanding was that Stas has a lot of coaching experience. He retired after 2002 and I think he was coaching in Galina Kukar's group but came out of retirement to skate with Tatiana. She has also referred to him being her partner/coach/lover even while they were skating together, and I'm sure he also helped out with some of the younger pairs.
