According to the geotag, Vasiliev's group seems to now be training at the Medvedkovo rink, which is where the Alexeeva/Kustarova group is based. The only other group there was Sergei Dobroskokov's (Davankova and Deputat's old coach). but I don't think he has any pairs left...


Gold for the Winter Prince!

I think I am going to love this new team! Vera looks happy and skating wise they seem to be a good

I always liked Vera and Yuri but I have to admit from the little bit I have seen
Andrei seems to present her much better than Yuri did.

Thanks for all the updates and info!


Congrats to Sota, #7 in World Standings!

From an interview with Oleg Vasiliev (summing up)
Bazarova/Deputat are skating the LP to Beatles, the SP for now is Chopen, but Vasiliev might change it - he says the music is very even with no accents and if the skating will not be very interesting it'll put the audience to sleep. They will decide by the end of July whether to change it to something classical
The Beatles were chosen because it's a known worldwide music. He was going to offer something more radical - Bee Gees' `Saturday night fever'. Both programmes choreographed by Elena Maslennikova who they have been working for 2 years with now. They will later show the programmes to Averbukh and have his feedback.

An interview with Vera and Andrei.

Translation from quiqie on FSU:

Q: Which of your new programs do you like better?
Andrey: To be honest, I like The Beatles program better, it's new, we haven't done anything like that before.
Vera: It's completely new for me as well, I never did anything like that in my life, and neither did Andrey, and it is also the first time that we use music with lyrics, so we can sing along.
Q: Vera, it's really a new style for you, we are used to seeing you more balletic and classical, was it difficult?
Vera: I'm getting used to it little by little.
Q: Who came up with the idea?
Andrey: We did it all together. We really wanted something that everybody knows, everywhere in the world.
Vera: And we wanted something unusual, so we hope people will like it.

Guys, I just updated their OP. There's nothing new there, but it is at least all in one place.

Unfortunately Vera is ill and hospitalized, so these two will not be able to compete at the Mordovian Ornament. I hope she will get well soon :agree:
