— Kamila Valieva was alongside Vladimir Putin during the opening ceremony of the Future Games. Do you think this could be considered a gesture of support for the figure skater from the president?

– Without a doubt, this should be seen as a gesture of support. This is a signal to everyone that Camila continues to be an honest and pure athlete for us.

I wish Valieva great success, but recent history should teach athletes, those around us and doctors a lot. You cannot be unprofessional, careless and hope for luck. Everything must be calculated clearly and carefully, and no accidents or nuances should be allowed.

I’ve already said that Camila won’t disappear, this is further proof. It will continue to rotate in the orbit of at least commercial tournaments. As for the rest, the gold has already been taken from us. No matter how they won the bronze medal, the Canadians were still in good shape,” Guberniev told .

At the end of January, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) suspended Valieva for four years for violating anti-doping rules. The 17-year-old Russian’s suspension period begins on December 25, 2021, and her results have been canceled since that date.

The “Games of the Future” will take place in Kazan from February 21 to March 3, 2024. The sports program includes competitions in 21 disciplines at 10 sports facilities in Kazan and Sochi.
