The Angels of Plushenko Academy filed an official complaint with the ethics commission of the Russian Figure Skating Federation (FFKR) against coach Sofia Fedchenko, who commented on Evgeni Plushenko’s statements.
Plushenko’s side asked the commission to assess two episodes: “public discussion and public assesment of the athlete Sofia Titova” and “public insult of coach Plushenko Evgeni Viktorovich.”
The second episode concerns Fedchenko’s words about the “hysteria” of the two-time Olympic champion.

The Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) has appealed the decision of the Disciplinary Anti-Doping Committee (DAK RUSADA) to find Kamila Valieva not guilty of a doping violation.
I agree. Alina is a lovely skater who deserved to win in my opinion. I didn’t even know who her coach was until Plushenko complained about her.
Plushenko is upset and is fighting for his girls (his name..). But this fight looks both pity and stupid. I watched Alinas skate by the way – she was great! Congratulations to Alina and Sofia. And Plushenko is doing great PR for Alina/Sofia now;)
What? He’s gonna whine at foreign specialists when things doesnt go his way?
His student shall never skate on international competition again. I think when Mishin dies, Fed is gonna canned him.
