    From Russia With Love [#40]: Summer 2021 & into the Olympic season

    Ukrainian last names like Kulik, or English ones like Davis do not add an -a, and neither do Russian ones like Ilinykh. To add an -a, a name must end in -ov/ev or -in. It doesn't have to be Slavic, other ethnic groups like Tatars also have last names ending in -ov/ev and -in which add an -a...

    Russian women news & updates, 2021-22 season

    The extent of Zhilina's injury has been greatly exaggerated in the media, she is already back to skating with no jumps, but she is out of the JGP.

    Yes, obviously. This means that no new "juniors moving up" can beat her next season since she is herself a junior moving up. After that, who knows. Kamila will be thanking her lucky stars if the age is raised right after she wins OGM, if she wants to/is able to continue that is.

    Moving up when? Kamila herself is still a junior. There are younger girls with 3A and quads, who knows where they'll be in a few seasons. Whether the age is raised is of course mega-important in making projections.

    From Russia With Love [#39]: Into Winter 2021

    Plushenko is building another rink in Moscow which should open in the spring. Volkov is currently waiting for it while training on borrowed ice. As for Gorky-10, it may be the middle of nowhere compared to central Moscow, but it's right around where rich people live (it is where Plushenko lives...

    I know an 80+ year old who had the mildest case in her entire family. It's possible. And you stop being infectious after two weeks, which is the quarantine is that long.

    From Russia With Love [#38]: Fall/Winter 2020

    There is a different version of events where it is not Trusova and her family who are at fault but the other parties.

    From Russia With Love [#37]: Summer 2020

    Plushenko has said a couple of times Trusova is not depicting Juliet the character but the story of Romeo and Juliet. I hope her costume maker is aware and won't give her a standard Juliet costume.

    That vaccine is not going to be in general use till 2021. It's now going through phase III trials which are meant to be competed by the end of the year. There has been talk of vaccinating medical staff and teachers on a voluntary basis before this, but certainly not athletes.

    But exceptions are made all the time when they want to make exceptions. Students have transferred to Eteri outside of the transfer window, just recently Kolyada transferred outside of the transfer window. Nobody kicked up a fuss and held onto funding for dear life.

    From Russia With Love [#37]: Summer 2020

    Yes, but those who qualify for senior nationals will automatically qualify for junior nationals. Not really an issue with ladies, but junior men will have to think carefully about whether they want to risk trying for senior nationals by competing in seniors, not making it and thus not making...

    Kostornaia leaves Tutberidze

    I am not starting anything, none of this information comes from me. I am not the insider. You are free to believe whatever you choose. Btw, Ivkov is the former doctor of the rthythmic gymnastics national team, he does not work for Plushenko.

    Kostornaia leaves Tutberidze

    It's not the content of the videos but who posted them. Do we see a lot of training videos filmed by sports medicine specialists? It was then confirmed that Dr. Ivkov was treating Alyona which made sense. Doctors were mentioned by Plushenko here but there were no references to specific health...

    Kostornaia leaves Tutberidze

    The "disappearing" videos posted by Dr. Alexei Ivkov which were then elaborated upon by an insider (most likely an official one considering the info she's provided). But even before that there were health problems mentioned by Daniil and doctors Plushenko's talked about in his interview. No...

    Kostornaia leaves Tutberidze

    Considering the latest info on Alyona's health problems the conflict could easlily have been around that.
