Anna Sidorova, the girl of the Olympic champion Dmitry Solovyov, told the details of the incident with the beating of the athlete. This was reported in the Telegram channel of the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC).
The figure skater's companion, who is a famous curler, spoke about the preliminary forecast of doctors about the recovery time of the athlete. According to them, Solovyov will have to spend at least ten days in the hospital.
Sidorova was also delighted with the publicity that the story received. “Other people should see from this example that this is not the way to behave and this should not be,” added the athlete.
Soloviev fell victim to the attack when he stood up for Sidorova. The attackers were detained, and the victim himself was hospitalized with a head injury. The skater is in the neurosurgical department of the Botkin Hospital. The moment of the attack was captured by a video surveillance camera.
Soloviev performed in ice dancing with Ekaterina Bobrova. Together they became 2014 Olympic champions and 2018 Olympic silver medalists in team competition.
