Plushenko told how to save Russian figure skating

MOSCOW, 23 Mar. Two-time Olympic champion in singles Evgeni Plushenko, in an interview with RT, said that it was necessary to organize international competitions in the conditions of not allowing Russians to participate in tournaments under the auspices of the International Skating Union (ISU). According to the coach, figure skaters from China should be involved in tournaments , Armenia, Belarus and other countries.

"You still need to compete. It is necessary to hold tournaments within the country, to pull up China, Armenia, Belarus – everyone. I have already made a suggestion: why not launch a series of Grand Prix tournaments in Russia? On the same dates, six stages and the final will be held. But not for the six finalists, but to make two groups so that there are 10 or 12 people. You can't do without competition. I think that in two years we will return to the international arena and we must be ready for this", — says Plushenko.

Plushenko works in his own academy. He is 39 years old, in addition to two Olympic gold medals, he became the world champion three times and seven times the European champion.
