Medvedeva is assigned to compete at the Russian stage of the ISU Grand Prix series, held in Moscow from November 20 to 22.

Evgenia Medvedeva on the Channel One news report, her interview translated to English:

Medvedeva: As an athlete, I wanted and expected a little faster recovery. But the problem requires a longer solution and treatment. I am now allowed to go out on the ice, I occasionally jump but not every day. I go out to skate for about an hour a day.
