Olympic diving champion and now RT journalist Elena Vaitsekhovskaya spoke about the situation around Russian figure skaters Diana Davis and Gleb Smolkin.
Diana Davis said that the couple will not be able to come to the test skates of the Russian national team because of Smolkin’s problems with entering the United States.
Vaitsekhovskaya noted that when entering the United States, it is not required to go through passport control and show the presence of a visa.
“So, the phrase should be read like this: “Sorry, dear fans and bosses, but if we leave the United States, then the partner will no longer be able to enter back. And this does not suit us in any way, ”Vaitsekhovskaya wrote in Telegram channel.
She added that in connection with this, a “second” arises.
“Why, in the current situation, do members of the Russian national team, which the country continues to finance, need the opportunity to stay in the United States at all costs? And this is definitely not a question for the American Figure Skating Federation, ”added the journalist.
Earlier, Diana Davis and Gleb Smolkin denied information about participation in the Challenge Cup in the United States.
