    Idk for sure unfortunately. But several people on the different sites reported it. So i'm assuming this is true. I hope not tho.

    What do you mean? Sinitsina or Zoueva didn't come back with him? Why?

    Yes at this point enough sites that are at least quasi legit have independently reported that he came back to Russia and was alone that I don't doubt it. But it is unclear why and whether it means anything. Maybe he had a family emergency. Maybe Victoria was booked on a different flight and is following shortly. Maybe a lot of things. We will see.

    IF this does mean that ZuZu won't coach/endorse them (not the same thing and the first isn't necessarily as bad as the second, but either is bad news for them), that surely does throw a wrench in their hopes, whether or not he is in fact asking Elena to skate with him again or sticks with Victoria.

    Or else it is possible they took it in Michigan and it did not go well at all, I suppose. Or that Victoria is following shortly and they plan to take it tomorrow? Who knows? This has always been, and remains, a disaster.

    Its only me who thought federation officials don't know what they are doing? They said they will give three weeks time to tryout and they will see result. This three weeks become five-six weeks and still there is not a test skate.

    I'm so very happy Elena and Ruslan didn't wait for this s***

    Maybe the fed were giving Nikita time for him to find out what a horrible decision he has made or maybe they really don't know what they are doing. Im just tired of all this drama, want to have the couples approved already. If not both of them than at least they should approve Elena and Ruslan, why keep them waiting?

    Oh, dear. I have a very bad feeling that if Nikita comes back, Elena will give up her partnership with Ruslan and go back to Nikita again. :( She didn't grow up with a father figure, and the men in her life all seem to treat her really badly (Nikita, Morozov)... Nikita acts like the diva in this "partnership" and dumps her over and over, only to have her take him back each time. I feel like Ruslan is the first guy to treat her well. But is she mature enough to know better? Come on, Elena, be strong!

    Honestly, if he really is asking to get back with her, it would be a tough decision for her I think, not in terms of her childhood or whatever, but in terms of the reality of the situation. Yes, sure, she seems to be having fun with Ruslan and he seems to at least not be treating her badly but the facts is that she knows she can get good results with Nikita. Now is it slightly more complex than that in terms of can they trust one another again, will he just try to dump her again etc, but she knows if she gets back with him, they have the potential to be OGM. With Ruslan it is all factor X. And if anyone thinks this 'break' is going to impact the scores the judges will get them, it's really not, at least not long term, and not at all if the Rus. Fed. throws their full support behind them again, which is to be anticipated if they do come back together. It will be given some fairy tale spin- they realized they are soulmates on ice after all and the future of skating yada yada yada. Maybe THEY'LL even be given to Zouva and she can help with that for sure.

    Now do I think she should take Nikita back? No and I hope she doesn't. But if she does, I understand why, and I don't think it necessarily has anything to do with men treating her bad or father figures. It would be a pragmatic decision made after hopefully weighing the pros and cons of such a decision.

    If Nikita does ask to come back together( I hope not), hope Elena can think thoroughly about everything then make her decision. She should consult some experienced, honest, unbiased experts. As long as Ruslan and her look not much worse than Nikita and her, she should stay with Ruslan.

    Nikita could be coming back for army duties. Ruslan, along with Maisuradze and Soloviev have been posting pics of their group.

    Well said; and I fully agree.

    Abraxis12345 Yes, that is also totally possible if he's still in the army (no idea).
