Who is plushenko dating whos dating jessica simpson
A commentator on Russian-language Eurosport-2 television, Andrei Zhurankov, gave his opinion on air that "there was no such operation", prompting a threat to sue from Plushenko.
Rudkovskaya quickly responded to the accusation by posting photographs on Twitter of Plushenko in a hospital bed, hooked up to a catheter.
Now was the time to decide, to nominate the chosen one.
In the outside world, true believers eagerly awaited news of the verdict.
In December, after he finished a disappointing second in the Russian national skating championship for the first time in 15 years, he talked bluntly of giving up his solo slot at Sochi.
But Rudkovskaya wrote to him on Instagram: "Dear beloved Zhenya, we all love you very much and believe in you!
Baturin is the brother of the wife of Moscow's former mayor Yury Luzhkov.
Baturin worked with his sister before they had a falling out.
In 2013 her first husband, Viktor Baturin, formerly a multi-millionaire businessman, was handed a seven-year prison sentence for embezzlement.
The couple reportedly met in Sochi, where Rudkovskaya ran several beauty salons.
"I think this situation all flows from the fact that Plushenko's wife is Yana Rudkovskaya.
This is all in the sphere of PR," soccer commentator Vasily Utkin told Sovetsky Sport daily at the time.
