Sokolovskaya's tan is everything :rofl:
This puts Aliona'05 to shame!


Who are the other 2 ladies besides leonova? my brain is not working right now.
The tall one in black on Alena's left (seen from her perspective) is Maria Talalaikina. The other one I don't know.

- Mikhail Kolyada announces he has a fiance and they just spent time on a great vacation. "To clarify my personal life (to my fans) I've just went on a great vacation with my fiance".

- Elena Ilinykh/Polunin on "Evening Urgant" (can translate if anyone is interested. they met on line, he invited her to dance with him before they met in person. She wants to try new forms of expression. They motivate each other, trying new things.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcPkDMhczTU
Just fotos from the show:

If we're talking about Polunin/Ilinykh talk show about their dancing and "Rasputin", then a picture a video is worth a thousand words... :lol:

There was an interview with Tamara Moskvina not so long ago, she said that Yuko made a decision to stay in St Petersburg after retirement. She is working at the Center for Japanese Language and Culture in Petersburg, is giving figure skating lessons to foreign diplomats’ children and is coaching at Moskvina’s rink at times
Yuko is blooming lately, best of luck to her.. I was not a fan of their competitive programmes, but their recent show numbers are terrific.

Congrats to Kolyada for getting engaged. Is it the common age to get engaged in Russia? Isn't he in his early 20s?

There are some junior GP events first and there are some really good juniors on the circuit for the first time.
Any promising dance teams? Of course the last thing I need is another Russian dance team to fall in love with since I have like seven to three spots on the team but I can't help myself!

Looked on the map where is Kranoyarsk. The rusfed really doesn't skip a hole in the middle of nowhere...
I can't imagine the logistics of holding a major competition in what looks like the buttcrack of Siberia in winter. I can just picture someone like Brian Orser arriving at the rink after 24+ hours of travel and being :confused::confused::confused:

To be fair, Russian Nats also happened to be held in Saransk (Mordovia) which is also pretty much "WTF?!". At least we got TAT there with a Mordovian cookbook she talked about and thus provided random entertainment.
Maybe she'll get a Siberian cookbook next time or some other random local gift she is going to rave about.
