“Even though she may look 12, she’s already 16. At this age, a person should already take responsibility for themselves and their actions.” Evgenia Medvedeva about the situation with Alina Gorbacheva
Evgenia Medvedeva commented on the news about Alina Gorbacheva being found.
16-year-old figure skater Alina Gorbacheva was found by police in Moscow after a day of being missing.
“In this whole situation, there is a lot that’s incorrect. We don’t know all the details. We can discuss, but we shouldn’t condemn. It’s definitely not up to us to figure out; the matter has reached the prosecutor’s office.
I will keep my own opinion to myself because there will certainly be people who think I’m wrong, and they’ll keep dissecting this.
Right now, that’s not the most important thing. The most important thing is that the person is alive, and things are okay in terms of human life. What will happen next – we’ll see, but the situation overall is not great.
The only thing I’ll remind everyone is that even though she may look 12, she’s already 16. At this age, a person should already take responsibility for themselves and their actions.
Of course, there are factors like mental health, which is crucial, and the family situation – we know that before this situation, the athlete was not living with her family but with her coach. That in itself is a strong psychological stress, in my opinion, I wouldn’t be able to do that.
What happened, no one knows, but the person is already quite grown up. That’s why the situation is causing such a resonance.
As someone who has been in sports constantly, I don’t understand the situation. How can you allow a 16-year-old (even though she looks 12) to just go to a park somewhere?
In my case (I also look much younger than my age): my mom or my grandma would take me from home to practice, from practice to the car, and back home. Always asking, ‘Where are you?’, ‘What are you doing?’, some form of supervision. Because, firstly, it’s sports, and secondly, it’s a child. At least in appearance. A person who looks 12, how can you just let them walk around like that?” – said Medvedeva.
Alina Gorbacheva has been found in a cinema within one of the shopping centers and taken to a unit of the Moscow Investigative Committee
