Earlier, 19-year-old Nugumanova, in an interview with Match TV, accused her coach Rukavitsyn of humiliation and threats. Here’s the link to the original interview:
Elizaveta Nugumanova: The coach is still doing nasty things pursuing me. He tries to turn different people against me, calls them, so that no one communicates with me and doesn’t take me to other groups. He is also trying to find compromising evidence on me, but I said that he would not harm me with it, I also thank all those who love me, support me and believe that the truth will win.
I entrusted my coach as soon as I joined his group, and he just dumped me. It’s not a big sport, when it’s forbidden to go on the ice and work normally, when it was forbidden to skate programs, when all the coaching staff used to laugh, humiliate and mock, but at the same time regularly received a salary for working with me. I know perfectly well what big sport is, he didn’t work with me, he was eliminating me. People who are trying to side with this person don’t know the truth, they say things they don’t know about.
Rukavitsin was preparing for my interview, creating a bad reputation for me, he spread rumors and said things that never happened. As it turned out, he did this not only with me, there are also girls from his group who texted me as soon as they found out all this, he had these athletes before me, he ruined their careers.
My appeal to Evgeni Vladimirovich: be kinder, try to help all the people who are taken to your group, and a return will immediately come to you and you will be fine.
Also according to MatchTV Elizaveta Nugumanova left the group og Evgeni Rukavitsin.

Alena Kostornaia: “If you compete in seniors, you are already an adult. Maybe in life – no, but in sports – yes. If you have adult privileges, then you are responsible as an adult.”
I don’t know how the laws around this kind of thing work in Russia, but I hope for her sake that she produces some hard evidence of mistreatment very soon, otherwise she may well be leaving herself wide open to a defamation lawsuit.
