Competition at these, world class, levels brings heightened risk with it. I hope this young women’s surgery has a good outcome, and that she recovers quickly.

Putin is everywhere! What a great guy he is – so concerned… NOT, Why is Reuters behaving like Russian State Channel 1. The constant 24/7 coverage of everything putin. Meanwhile people who actually care about the fate and state of the country are ignored, ostracized or vilified.

I wish Komissarova a speedy recover as do all genuinely concerned people. At the same time, I really hate to see her misfortune turned into a propaganda stage for the criminal in the kremlin.
