He says that Plushenko is doing well, that he is doing jumps now doubles and triples. That right now, there is no pain and that he sees that Evgeni really wants to get back on shape. He does not know for sure when he will be back. Mishin is asked if maybe for Nationals since there will take place in Petersburg. Mishin says that maybe Plushenko will do Nationals, he says that Plushenko is skating well and that right now he is doing some shows (I guess he meant the Korea ones) and that when he comes back they will start training even harder.
Finally he says "You want to watch? Then come. We have no secrets for you".

2007-09-12* Evgeni Plushenko does not want to quit figure skating nor politics.

The figure skating Olympic champion Evgeni Plushenko is going to combine politics and sports. About this Plushenko, who is a deputy on the legislative assembly of St.-Petersburg, informed journalists on Wednesday before the first session of the city parliament after summer vacations.

"I have started trainings. I had a surgery on the summer. Now I'm training doubles and triples jumps and I will prepare new programs. Right now I don't want to quit neither amateur figure skating, nor the legislative assembly ", Plushenko said.

2007-08-27* Evgeni is releasing a book called (if the translation is the correct)...

Another show

Books comes out on September 3rd.
It's 192 pages with 16 picture-pages, costs 157 roubles and they are doing a first printing of 30 000 copies.

Plush will present the book on September 5th on the International Book Fair (I'm guessing Moscow?), and he'll do a radio show.
He will participate the show on the 15th in Korea. He will enter Korea on the 13th, by the flight which will arrive at 11: 10 a.m.


2007-08-22* Some news... news.mail.ru/society/1408844/
It says that Plushenko's sister Elena will have twins this September, so Evgeni is all happy to have two new nieces/nephews soon and it's flooding Elena with toys.

Here it says that Plush will do the 07/08 season (I guess they are talking about the Euros/Worlds)

2007-08-21* Plushenko will skip this season?

According to «SportKom», the figure skating Olympic champion Evgeni Plushenko will probably skip this season.

According to the figure skater coach Alexei Mishin, there had been some complications as a result of Plushenko's recent knee surgery. The trainer has not gone into details about this but just added that "from the knee that was operated, it starting to grow some bone". Probably, for this reason, the Olympic Champion missed some exhibitions performances in Hungary and has refused to participate in the project of the First channel «Stars on an ice».
Well it's not really surprising, I mean we know Plushenko has competed with a lot a LOT of pain for years and usually a show with pain is not problem for him, so when he decided to cancel the shows in Hungary, it did seemed obvious this time it was very serious.
We'll wait to see if Mishin will say more about this.

- It says that Plushenko may need another surgery on the meniscus due complications from his first surgery.
- Ari says right now Plushenko is in Germany and there is a big chance he may need another surgery on the knee. Says that after the surgery Evgeni felt great and he wanted to train right away, and because of overworking there were some problems.
- As for the competitive season, Ari said that there are some problems but they are being solved now and the important thing is that Evgeni is still very disposed to train and he will do so in September and it's very likely he'll compete by January.
- The producers of DOI2 have said that they won't disclosed information about Evgeni's health and that everyone will find out about him later.
- The tden.ru article mentions a legal problem with DOI2 that the DOI2 wants Evgeni to pay them because he has withdrawn from the project but Evgeni is saying that the reason he is not doing it it's because he can't skate at all.
- Evgeni says that what happened with his knee is that he started training, and as a result there was some bone growing and his foot got very swollen. So he left for Munich where the doctors decided what to do. He's had an injection so far and if in a couple of days that does not work, then he'll need surgery. Doctors had forbidden him to skate or walk and he is getting constants massages.


2007-08-16* Zhenya is not coming to Hungary. Something bad has happened with his knee but even IceVision is reluctant to release any information (they say they do not know the details). There will be a press conference on it on Wednesday the 22nd so I suppose we just have to wait.

What’s all set is that TT/MM are coming to Budapest to replace Zhenya at the Syma Hall and Julia Sebestyen will also perform in that show. The other two shows are cancelled altogether.
In summary it says that Plushenko's knee is hurting again which is why his participation in "Dancing on Ice" is in doubt.

2007-07-19It will be the third stage of Cup of Russia (local) to be held in Kazan on November 12th where Plushenko will first compete – says Ari Zakarian in this article.

It is also said that his trainings are planned to commence on August 15th where he is going to join the Mishin camp in Jaca.
It's Ari saying one more that Plush will start training in August 15th that right now he is doing physical rehab in St. Petersburg and that if everyhting goes to plan, he'll do:
- Cup of Russia in Khazan
- ISU Cup of Russia in Moscow
- Russian Natioanals
- Europeans Championship in Zagreb
- Worlds Championships in Gothenburg

And Ari remind everyone that Evgeni is coming back this season in order to see if he can keep going and do a "good work" at Olys 2010, Ari said that for Evgeni "good work" means only winning.

But the true is that there is one problem: I recently had a tomogram done and I was told that it's necessary to have surgery on my knee. The meniscus has detached itslef. Therefore in July, after I come back from Guatemala, where I'll go to support Sochi during the selections for the country of Olympics 2014, I will get surgery. But I hope that everything will turn out fine and that in August I will be ready to start trainings, and in autumn I will return to amateurs.

Plushenko wrote a letter to the RFSF adressed to Valentin Pissiev regarding his plans for the next season, and the RSFS has released this letter to the public


“Dear Valentin Nikolaevich,

In reply to your letter (ref. N161-VP) of 26.04.2007 I inform you that in the 2007/2008 season I plan to take part in one of the stages of the Cup of Russia, and also in the stage of the ISU Grand prix "Cup of Russia". My participation in other competitions will depend on my physical condition and my sports form.

Yours faithfully,
E .V. Plushenko "
For the people wondering why Evgeni mentions Cup of Russia twice and counts it as two events is because in Russia there is a series of regionals events called Cup of Russia (think of it as a Russian Grand Prix series); and the other is the ISU "Cup of Russia" that has international skaters.

Plush on the 04/05 season did one of the Cup of Russia events in Samara where he did Godfather for the first time and then went on to do the ISU "Cup of Russia"

The Cup of Russia events are
- Samara on September, 24-28th
- Perm on October, 15-19th
- Kazan on November, 12-16th
- Moscow on December, 4-7th
- Tver on February, 19-22th.

The ISU "Cup of Russia" is in Moscow on November, 22-25nd.

It's very likely Plushenko will do Samara again.

It's not decided yet, first they have to find out the exact state of his injury. See article. Source: King On Ice

2005-03-17* Sad news....A disappointing reigning World Champion Plushenko tells live from Eurosport this morning of his decision to withdraw on home ice in Moscow because of his injury, the pain was to high, he was unable to defend his title today. He had several injections before trainings and before the short program but he reacted bad to this and it made him feel sick. "I want to say for my fans right now I'm really sorry. I will definitely try to come back next season, and I'm looking forward to Olympic Games next year and be healthy". I think he did a right decision, his health is most important and we all now he come back, "the old" Evgeni we are used to see. Three unexpected took medals this year, (such things can happen when Plushenko is out of competition;) the Gold medal went to Stephane Lambiel, he is a great skater, also one of my favourites, my other favourite Johnny Weir was 4th, and our Swedish Kristoffer B. ended at 14th place, very well done! But I had never seen a competition like this, everyone did several mistakes and falls...the ice was bad. Evgeni...take some rest now and take care of your injurys, we love you!!! I Love You!

2005-03-15* Evgeni only finished 3rd after the short program with 73.28 points. Skating to his program "Moonlight Sonata". The reason is that he fell on the quad and he lost to many points by it. His score is now 111.26 overall. First is Stephane Lambiel who did a strong program as well as Brian Joubert who is second. That means that Evgeni needs to gain 7.02 points more in the free skate then the others to win. Wich is possible since he could get often 20-30 points more overall than the second placed skater but this time it could be difficult since he is not in very good health. He had been back on the ice for only two weeks and he is in a bad, bad condition because of his groin injury and hip, " besides his ordinary knee and back problem " , so it could be difficult. He is a strong fighter and since the competition is in Russia he wants to skate anyway, and win of course, and we hope for the best, even if he don't win, we know he is the CHAMPION!!! But we hold our thumbs. The free program is on Thursday. Our Swedish skater Kristoffer Berntsson ended at number 13, which is good for him. But my heart is in Russia;) Parts of this news is from : King On Ice

2005-03-14* Today VM in Moscow begins. Petra mailed me this morning and told me that Evgeni has a groin injury and maybe he won't skate, but as she said, he is strong, and he skated! So the men qualification is now over and Evgeni remained first with 151.90 points. The qualification points will count 25% of the score and Evgeni will go with 37.97 points to the short program tomorrow. Evgeni - take care of your injury, and win tomorrow. Sweden hold their thumbs for you!!! Source: King On Ice
