CSP Director Georgy Brusov said on Tuesday that the FFKKR transferred the funds spent on the preparation of figure skaters to the organization.
“The representatives of the pair paid the necessary amount, and the federation yesterday transferred the money to the CSP in full accordance with their request. So all the necessary procedures have been completed. The issue is closed,” FFKR press-secretary Ermolina told Match TV.
Davis and Smolkin are silver medalists of the Russian Nationals, participants of the 2022 Olympic Games in Beijing. The skaters did not compete in domestic competitions last season.
