My apologies. Rukhin is a special case. In the long line of his former coaches, everyone can be confused: he trained by Buyanova, by Tutberidze, by Plushenko, again by Tutberidze, by Volkov.... Egor Rukhin (Moskow, Russia) moved to Vasilevsky's group from Aleksandr Volkov's group.

No problem! As Rukhin's fanfest shows, the OP there may not always show the most up-to-date coach as some coaching situations are complicated, or there's been a recent change. That's also a reason I prefer learning that kind of information here when updates are posted. :)
Thanks for the additional info, and the changes are edited in now :]
