What's your take on the recent Russian FS Fed election?

Sounds to me like Sikharulidze withdrew because he knew what was going to end up happening. Gorshkov becomes President in a no contest, but then Piseev is appointed to a brand new positions with (which looks to be) all of the same privileges and duties that he had as former President. I don't really have a strong opinion of Piseev either way nor do I closely follow all of the Russian skating politics, but the whole thing does seem a little strange. Russia better know what they are doing in the next four years if they want to be much more competitive as a whole than they were leading up to and in Vancouver.

Ask me a question about figure skating!
