On Tuesday, it became known that the 29-year-old Canadian striker received Russian citizenship. The corresponding decree of Russian President Vladimir Putin was published on the official legal information portal.

— When you take Russian citizenship, how should you register in the team?

— I think the SKA boys and I will go to dinner at the first opportunity. I’m going to put it down! There will definitely be caviar and a bottle of vodka. Something about Russian style.

— Do you have a Russian teacher?

“I don’t have such a teacher that I would go to him.” But I installed a special app on my phone that helps me communicate. I try to communicate with everyone in Russian. I think I will be able to improve my language skills by immersing myself in the everyday sphere. It’s time to learn Russian better!

— Your wife is an actress who studied according to the Stanislavski system. Doesn’t she also want to accept Russian citizenship? Maybe star in films with Russian directors.

— Yes, the Stanislavski system is very popular in North America, all the players learn from it. Now our family has a Russian passport – we may consider a second one. As they say, we will approach this topic step by step. The main thing is that my wife loves coming to St. Petersburg. She is happy here and I am happy that my family is in a good mood. Well, if they call it to Russian cinema, that would be great.

— Never before has a North American with Russian citizenship played for the Russian national team. In May you can become a pioneer. Is this an incentive?

— We have already taken the first step and I received a Russian passport. I don’t know what the future holds and if I will even be invited to the national team. So you just have to wait. You never know what will happen.

— Are you considering buying an apartment in Russia to live in two countries?

“It’s possible, although I haven’t made that decision yet.” Maybe I’ll do that in the future. Like I said, you don’t know what the future holds.

—Has your former Washington teammate, Alexander Ovechkin, ever congratulated you?

— No, Ovechkin hasn’t written to me yet. Although we have spoken several times since I applied for citizenship. I hope Ovi writes to me again. But when they gave me a Russian passport, my family and friends congratulated me. It was nice.

— Name three favorite places in Russia that have already appeared.

— If it’s Moscow, it’s the Sandunovskie baths. I like to steam in it with a broom. There are also a number of fancy restaurants. I don’t want to advertise this, but you yourself know that the choice is simply huge. Like in St. Petersburg. I have some great steakhouses in mind. I also like to walk along Nevsky Prospekt. Beautiful! – said Lipsik in an interview with .
