This week, most of the top Russian figure skaters were forced to withdraw from the fifth stage of the Cup of Russia. There were some highlight performances from Eteri Tutberidze on Instagram and Kamila Valieva and Anastasia Mishina and Aleksandr Galliamov at the competition. With so many skaters being forced to withdraw, we discuss what it means for the rest of the figure skating season and debate how we can qualify skaters to the Olympic Games. Meanwhile, the holidays are approaching and like Victor Petrenko, we are very excited. We break it all down on another edition of 'This and That'.
