Can you introduce me as Joker?
Also I have by now found several articles where Plushenko and Rudkovskaya subtly trash Alena.Don’t celebrate your victory yet. I would give it a few weeks to see whether Pluschenko decides to share his side of the story, and ‘accidentally’ let it slip that Kostornaya was a nightmare because......(lots of reasons how hard it was to coach her).
Rudkovskaya says she's "relieved" Alena is gone, adds that "it's impossible to train (full-time) and heal at the same time", "Alena didn't want to take a break to heal, although we encouraged her" etc. To me, she makes it sound like Alena repeatedly disobeyed her coaches and questioned their decisions.

Plushenko also said that he "doesn't need flowers" from Kostornaia and that her stunt with him was "a lesson for the whole academy" and that from now on he will only take responsibility for the skaters he coaches personally and will introduce "documents" (I think he means something like contracts) which will state clearly which "rights and duties" his skaters have. He is looking forward to accepting new skaters to fill her place and doesn't see a "tragedy". He even said that Alena "would commit a sin if she complained about anything" because he and his family did so much for her.
