I don't know if it is true but during Worlds German Eurosport commentators gave a hint that Mukhortova and Vasiliev are in a relationship, so it is obvious why he is blaming Trankov for the breakup now. I wouldn't be surprised if MM and Vasiliev have blamed Trankov for everything which went wrong with the team over the last years, but it was Mukhortova who always was the weaker part of the two. She will have difficulties to find another partner, but considering the whole situation I don't see why Trankov is to blame, and I don't see why one should feel sorry for her now.
Maxim has every right to look for a stronger partner if he wants to, and he will get no other choice to find someone as strong as Tatiana. I think Vasilievs words are useless and obnoxious.
