“There is ice on Moskvich, where we have already agreed on training. On Monday, tests passed, if the results are in order, let's start skating. It is clear that there will be some restrictions, but we are ready for them. They concern the number of people on ice, age, too. Only those athletes who are over 18 years old will be allowed to train, ”Zhulin told RT.

Thank you@RemyRose!
Could you give us the gist of what is said during the segment, please?

Oh I'll see what I can do. I don't speak Russian, but maybe there is a text version or cc on the video.

So what I got from the CC (translated to English) in the video in summary:

Match went to visit the guys during their preparation for the season.

Host: "Smile" and "Come together" was chosen even before quarantine. "Smile" will be slightly longer than the 2nd piece "Come together." The second part will be brighter as you can see from the draft version of the steps (shown in the video). Skaters were able to capture the mood of the music and convey it.

Nikita says they are trying to capture the image of MJ. Know the pattern, the movement, feel it, try what he thinks, how he walks, how he moves. That they found a choreographer to help them with the movements.

Zhulin said he wanted to give the guys some fresh air, to slightly change the style and for them its interesting, for him its a challenge because it's only a year before the Olympics.

Host states that the SD will remain the same, only the costume will change. Victoria stated that at the end of the season, she was still hoping that they would change the program, get something different. But they said that the program would remain.

Host: Only a month has passed and Nikita and Victoria went out to the ice in excellent shape with burning eyes but it is not clear what the season will hold in a pandemic. Now it's easier to work than in March because in March the World Championship was supposed to be and it was canceled. The pandemic prevented them from moving forward. They decided in small steps immediate goals and that the main source of motivation is test skates.

Moser and host discussed their chances at Worlds and if they could upset the French. Moser said in essence that the guys can compete with any rivals and that dance is subjective and it depends on the panel of judges, some like some skaters more than others.
