16-year-old Valeria Shulskaya, who trains at Angels of Plushenko, will not take part at the Russian National Championships this week.

Shulskaya told a Sport Express reporter that “I really wanted to participate in the championship, but COVID interfered with my plans. I tried to resume the training process, but alas. So now I’m recovering at home.”

Earlier, it was revealed that another member of Evgeni Plushenko’s figure skating academy – Alena Kostornaia – has withdrawn from the competition because she did not have enough time to prepare following her coronavirus recovery.

Arina Onishchenko has been added to the competition.
