Does your team have a good, warm relationship with Putin?
I think our team deserved it and really cheers us up when our country's leadership shows their attention to us. Putin said he would be in Vancouver to support the team.

With God's help we hope to have the next season as good.
What is next and when are you leaving to the States?
I am leaving on September 7th and I have one more week to work out with my personal trainer Dmitri Kapitonov before that.
