Evgenia Medvedeva talked about how she endured the hate directed at her. Here’s a translation of her comments.

Q: Your YouTube show is called “No Comment,” and you read out comments to your guests. How do you personally deal with hate? It seems to me that you’ve had many periods of bullying.

Evgenia Medvedeva: There were several “waves” which I’ve managed to live through. Not that the hate had a significant impact on me. Reading people’s comments under a photo is one thing, but it’s another when people start hounding you through the media.

When journalists begin calling your coach acquaintances, and these coaches say: “Oh, well, by the way…” Or when athletes start speaking out somehow. Or when articles appear in major publications that are against you. And you sit there wondering, ‘what the hell?’

If we talk about hate – of course, various articles, statements from coaches (which were few but were there), affected me more. We’re discussing waves of hate following certain specific events in my life.

As for what happens in the comments – it’s just entertainment for the psyche. A good comment – great, a bad comment – well, I just scroll past it.

Q: But don’t you associate them with yourself?

Evgenia Medvedeva: I don’t associate them with myself, no.

Q: There was an instance when almost an entire country rallied against you. I’m talking about Japan. It was an unpleasant occurrence for you considering that these are people not even from your own country, it’s a different language, everything is different. And such a large fan community.

Evgenia Medvedeva: Actually, this fuss was generated by these articles. In Russian. Prepaid ones.”
