Producer Yana Rudkovskaya spoke out after the conflict between her husband, two-time Olympic figure skating champion Evgeny Plushenko, with choreographer Alexei Zheleznyakov, who works in the Eteri Tutberidze group. She expressed her position in an interview with Sport-Express.
She was outraged because the specialist again “pounced on them.” “They pull us again, and even on a holiday! Well, it’s clear that he’s a crazy puppet. I don’t think it is necessary to say who controls this unfortunate person. Sorry for the guy! ” – emphasized the producer.
Rudkovskaya added that her family is waiting for Zheleznyakov and hopes that he “will answer for his” bazaar “or ask for forgiveness.”
On January 13, Zheleznyakov challenged Plushenko to a duel, wishing to “shut up his filthy mouth” in the ring. At the same time, the choreographer expressed confidence that his opponent would be scared. Plushenko accepted a challenge to a fight without rules from Zheleznyakov, but he explained the appearance of such an appeal with delirium tremens. The coach also expressed bewilderment that the choreographer constantly speaks out about him, although “no one touches him.”
The conflict between Plushenko and Zheleznyakov occurred in May after the transfer of Tutberidze’s pupils Alexandra Trusova and Veronika Zhilina to the academy of the two-time Olympic champion. The choreographer criticized the athlete and advised him not to waste time on trifles, but to immediately hire Tutberidze. In response, Plushenko called Zheleznyakov “the tenth wheel of the cart.”
