Russian world champion received karma for participating in a z-rally in Luzhniki in support of Putin
Russian figure skating world champion Victoria Sinitsyna reacted sharply to the decision of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne to strip her compatriot Kamila Valieva of the gold medal at the 2022 Olympics in the team figure skating tournament. Sinitsyna, along with Nikita Katsalapov, was also a member of the Russian national team and participated in those competitions.
After the CAS verdict, the International Skating Union (ISU) took away the gold medals of the 2022 Olympic Games in the team competition from the Russian figure skating team (including Sinitsyna and Katsalapov), giving them to the United States.
"All day long I've been running my thoughts through my head. And now it's time to go to bed, and I'm still doing it. Tomorrow I'll put everything together. For now, I'll just say that it's f*cking insulting! The boomerang is back," the 28-year-old athlete wrote.
As OBOZ.UA reported, on March 18 the year before last, Sinitsyna and Katsalapov took part in the rally "For a world without Nazism! For Russia! For the President!" in Luzhniki. Although officially, the rally-concert was allegedly timed to coincide with the 8th anniversary of Crimea's "annexation to Russia."
The comments linked this "boomerang" to a similar performance.
"I try to feel sorry for her, and then I remember how proudly they stood on stage at the Luzhniki rally-concert, and the desire to feel sorry for her disappears immediately," fans write online.
