Elena Ilinykh & Ruslan Zhigashin
Looking forward to seeing what this pair has to offer, based on the news I've heard about them so far. They're doing extraordinarily well, considering the circumstances. Here's wishing Elena and Ruslan good luck from now on! Goodness knows they've coped with enough drama to last them for years.

the partnership seems questionable about their longevity
we shall see, but good luck to them
OrdinaryDreamer Ditto, ditto! If they last past this "trial period" or whatever it is that they're in the midst of now with the Russian Fed, then I am hoping that they become a powerhouse. I really enjoy watching Elena skate....But I don't know as much about Ruslan.... So, I am hoping that he has good basic skills, good technicality and precision, emotes, works hard, and tries to work well with Elena. In addition, I hope Elena can trust him as a partner, continues to work on her consistency, will work hard, and hopefully will work well with Ruslan.

I'm more a fan of Ruslan than Elena and I can't say I like this couple without watching any performance yet. I wish the best for them since they're two young and talented skaters and I hope they'll light my fire on as soon as I see the result of their work
They're not a couple yet, but you're right. Ruslan will never get level 4 on any element and positive GoE's with his look.
