Yet another coup de théâtre from Russia: after rumors about Ilinykh/Katsalapov splitting, repeated "no comment" from the people concerned and Piseev's emphatic niet, Ilinykh/Katsalapov HAVE split, according to sport-express.ru.

Nikita will skate with Victoria Sinitsina, while Elena will skate with Ruslan Zhiganshin. How will end this story? Will see next season...

In the mean time it seems confirmed that Bazarova/Larionov split following this season disappointing results. Yuri will stay with Nina Mozer and will skate for Russia with Estonian skater Natalja Zabijako, but it seems the Estonian federation isn't happy at all with this arrangement and not inclined to give its consent. Vera Bazarova may have already found a new partner, but his name has still to be announced.

In both cases, to be continued...

Vera Barazova's new partner has been announced by the FFKKR, and it's Andrei Deputat, former partner of Vasilisa Davankova. Bazarova and Deputat will be coached by Oleg Vassiliev.
