"Frankly, the Russian federation PR department should had conducted such an interview a while ago. With Ilinyh as well. If only to cut off all the rumours. And to keep their public image on a decent level. It was just a nice gesture from my part, hardly more - I don't have to write about figure skating from April till September. If I do write I choose the subjects which I personally find interesting. As I mentioned before, I can't figure what interest would it be asking Katsalapov a question he is avoiding: `what was it all for'. Had he been ready to give a coherent answer I would accept any reply - it's his life and his rights. Just that he is not ready to answer. He is not being secretive - he is just not ready. His possible personal relations with the new partner have no interest to me, and if all that thing was a result of someone else's wish (and I have a reason to believe it was) then even more - Katsalapov who complied
holds no interest to me. I just can't see a personality, a character nor some shining future. As in: I don't believe in a shining future when there is no character and personality. Usually my intuition on those things works fine. Yes, it would be fair to listen to both sides. But just as I type an answer and think again about it: no, am not interested in the `right' thing here. I am interested in Lena's personality. In Nikita's - not at all"
