— At the European Championships, 24 Russian-born athletes compete for other teams. Plus those who were born outside Russia, but later had Russian citizenship. What are so many ex-Russians talking about?

— Of course, it is clear that Russian figure skating occupies a leading position in the world. At the European Championships, we only hear Russian names and surnames.

— And the large number of Russian coaches present at the Kaunas tournament also confirms the leadership of our country?

– How could it be otherwise, do you have any doubts? I confirm that our coaching school is the first in the world. I myself have worked with skaters from other countries, I know that. – Tarasova told .

Russian figure skaters have not participated in tournaments under the auspices of the International Skating Union since March 2022 due to the situation in Ukraine.
