Then, on Sunday, Eteri went on Russian TV to bash Evgenia:
Among other things, Eteri flagrantly lied by saying that she only found out about Evgenia leaving via media reports (which cannot be true, as everybody else seems to have known, including the aforesaid rink manager), and then said Evgenia had gotten angry with her for putting Alina Zagitova in the senior competition, and that she had not returned messages from Eteri for some time. She also bashed Brian Orser.
In response, Evgenia liked this tweet:

Reportedly, there will be an official announcement about Evgenia's future plans on Monday. Will Evgenia escape to a new life in Canada? Stay tuned!
