  1. He represented Unified Team in 1992 when he won his gold medal, not Ukraine. So it's still considered a Russian win.

  3. Well "tradtionally" they've been strong in pairs, ice dancing and men's competition. They've only begun to really get strong in women's after the 2010 Olympics in preparation for their hosting time. Yes they've had strong skaters in the past like Marya Butirskaya and Irina Slutskaya but there were always better skaters than them that prevented them from achieving gold at the Olympics. And after evgeny plushenko left skating full-time due to injury and whatever crap that bignosed twat was involved in, there was no other Russian male to follow in his footsteps and taking gold for Russia since Viktor Petrenko in 1992. And that will probably stay so long as the russian men's coaches only focus on jumping and not the other elements that the Japanese, and even the Russian ladies coaches have learned to properly exploit. 2010 was a wakeup call for Russia in figure skating to get their glory back in the sport. Unfortunately, there's no way to tell how many of those athletes won their golds without cheating since their discovery of the doping scandal and the allegations that the majority of the Russian athletes did in fact dope.
