“It is very sad that my career came on the time of war. I don’t see it’s possible to go in for sports in a state that pursues such a policy.
I’m grateful to the fans who supported and believed. I don’t finish with sports, I will finish only when I see a skater more promising than me, but for now I don’t see any.
I’m very glad that sport gave me sincere, honest and normal friends, such as Aleksandr Galliamov and Andrei Filatov, the rest, as time and situations have shown, are full of hypocrisy and absolutely empty inside, such are not worth even a minute of time spent on them.
-If I knew from the beginning that it would be like this in sports, would I go?
-Do I regret the wasted time, health and nerves?
-Would I do it all over again?
Do not forget that your life is not infinite. You will never be younger than now. Do not waste your time on meaningless living of days, on your miserable and degraded environment. What you watch, listen to, greatly affects you and changes your energy.
Listen to your heart and then you can find yourself.
As soon as I see that figure skating in Perm is dying, I will definitely help it, see you in ….”
