    Putin has a meeting with the ISU tech panel in regards to next years GP series on that day. All these talented jumping beans are really beginning to cut into his work week.

    For a moment there, when you mentioned Putin I actually thought: "Wait- What? Putin is going to skate too? But has he skate before? I mean he's pretty old and I don't think he can do it! Someone should stop him."

    Putin does skate!! He plays hockey and from what I've read it's fairly regularly. So sadly he probably lacks in toe assisted jumps.

    Who dare stop him, he as black belt in karate (Or it is Judo?). He could deliver the program well, I suppose.

    OOOHHHH!! I wasn't expecting that answer Interesting... I mean he doesn't have to go all out. They can just give him a stick and puck and from there he can do whatever he wants. Surprise us, Mr. Putin

    She doesn't use FB. Russian equivalent is VK.
    http://m.vk.com/id69994512

    Here is a fan page that has a lot of info and has to be run by someone pretty close to her considering some of the photos.

    http://m.vk.com/julia_lipnitskaya

    You may need to set up a VK account to view it all though. There is an English version of VK but youll need a translator app or something to read posts if you don't read Russian.
