    2) Plushenko
    3) Kulik
    My favourite is Yagudin, because I like his style of skating, it's not as cold as Plushy's, but Plushy's jumps are just amazing...

    I would add Artem Grigoriev to this list. He's my current and future favorite among the Russian men.

    Ilia Klimkin for me. Good jumps and unique body moves, spins, steps…. Sadly he had injury problems that prevented him from taking part in many international competitions.

    Am I the first, who will vote for Plushy?!

    The best skater of all time, not only best Russian!

    This might sound strange, but I've never had a truly favourite Russian mens skater. They are all nice people, I just don't care for their skating.

    I remember watching Bobrin and Fadeev in their prime on TV and liking them, but even back then I wasn't a real fan.
