9. Yulia Churkina/Boris Frolov (aged out of juniors)
(probably more skaters aged out but I only counted the ones who performed at junior nationals since most of them will stay together)

It should be mentioned that there were very few ice dance couples in 2022/23 season so all existing senior couples took part in the RGP. In 2023/24 season many didn't get a spot.
The field is getting deeper and deeper. Of course it won't be without splits, but overall the number of senior dancers is getting bigger. I think this season was the last time a couple not from Moscow or St Petersburg made it to the senior nats. I also think the federation must return 6 stages, there will surely be enough couples. And this year, too, there weren't enough spots. In my opinion, the fact that decent Ermakova/Krylov got only one stage is a crime.

This is likely mean they won't be on the national team. I wonder who gets the spot then.

Tyutyunina/Grachev: 7th at nationals (if still exist)
Zhdanova/Babaev-Smirnov: 8th at nationals (if Tyutyunina/Grachev split as well)
Shevchenko/Ezhlov: 6th at Spartakiad
Rybakova/Makhnonosov: 1st at junior nationals
