Moreover, sufficient for us to quickly take him to the hospital, where, under the supervision of qualified doctors, he was engaged in his health. I think the symptoms of his disease should not be the subject of our conversation. , let the doctors do it better. But I considered it necessary for him to be in the clinic under the supervision of highly qualified doctors. “

“He went through the camp, everything was fine. We periodically called up with the team, and they reported to us that everything was fine with them. Then Camilla, who is engaged in PR, drew attention first, she called and said:” I doubt something, with Sasha something is wrong. “Then I talked to the coach (Ivan Kirpa), who also noted that something is wrong with Sasha,” Ryabinsky said.

And Sanya, since he was the only one with symptoms, he was sent to The whole team, accordingly, did the tests – everyone was clean and only one person from the team tested positive, but who I am I won’t say.
