Yesterday, in the absence of serious competition, victory in the rhythm dance went to the pair Elizaveta Khudaiberdieva / Yegor Bazin, despite the fact that there was a fall and another gross error during the performance. And all the same, the judges gave 83.70 points, as a result, they managed to beat Elizaveta Shanaeva and Pavel Drozd by 4.1 points. And this development of events clearly did not please the public, who expressed their dissatisfaction with the refereeing even in the stands.

The tendency, when points are overstated in Russian competitions, and they just seem cosmic and close or even superior to them, has been observed for a long time. Judges elevate skaters even when they blunder. And so this season, Khudaiberdieva and Bazin never skated the rhythm dance properly, but they were actually ranked as record holders – a couple from France Papadakis / Sizeron. And you need to understand that Khudaiberdieva and Bazin are not the strongest couple in Russia, because there are also Bukin and Stepanova, Katsalapov and Sinitsyna, but they miss the season. But the judges continue to take certain athletes into space from time to time. This is how Valieva won with errors and a fall at the Russian Cup stage, and the Khudaiberdieva / Bazin pair also won. And if they get the victory with two blunders, there is no doubt that they will also give gold in the free program. And after all, this couple is the only one to have a fall in rhythm dancing.

Elizaveta Shanaeva and Pavel Drozd are the main contenders for silver, but they will be competing with Elizaveta Pasechnik and Maxim Nekrasov, who made some strange moves after the skate yesterday.

Pasechnik and Nekrasov left the arena after their performance at the Russian Championship. But having learned that they had taken third place in the rhythm dance, they decided to return to a press conference.
