Tatiana Tarasova about the performance of Victoria Sinitsina – Nikita Katsalapov and Alexandra Stepanova – Ivan Bukin at the Russian Nationals 2020:

Tatiana Tarasova: They skated great. Everything was confident and musical. Our two best pairs cannot beat the Americans … It’s just ridiculous. They do not want to see us on leading world positions.

Let us compete! Sasha and Vanya looked very inspired, their performance was impossibly beautiful. They make difficult things very easily.

    I am an American and I couldn’t agree more with the foul judging at the Grand Prix final for Victoria’s Sinitsina and Nikita Katsalapov. The bias was obvious. The deduction was unfair, when the French skater fell out of her position, yet no deduction. And the criticism was as unfair. Bottom line was the Russian pair were simply not rated as high a score as they should have been in comparison to the French who are ALWAYS given sky high marks no matter a fall or whatever. Even the British commentator thought their performance was going to “expand their lead”.
