Anna Pogorelaya, the Russian figure skater, bronze medalist of the world championship of 2016 is holding back tears, she said in a trembling voice:
– It’s a shock! I have no words. I want to support his family, so they know that all of our thoughts and feelings along with them now. Denis is so young, so talented… Scared that this could happen to anyone of us. The young should not die so early, he was so much more good ahead…
Still emotionally reacting to the death of the skater legendary coach Tatiana Tarasova:
– I’m dead. I love his mom and dad. Just called mom. I remember Denis is talented, hardworking and the best. Sitting in America, no one touched, came and it to the light sent. I can’t even say it’s just a mess.
And honored master of sports, Olympic medalist, and now a producer of ice shows Ilya Averbukh wonders how did Denis Ten could become a participant in shootouts, because he’s so intelligent and delicate person.
– Dennis and concepts such as aggression, fighting is incompatible. He was the very personification of intelligence, East of delicacy, of respect for the people around him. We were well acquainted, we had General plans, collaboration in the project. I remember when I came to our show in Kazakhstan, it gave us a real Oriental hospitality. I always wondered how he’s considerate, it can be linked with peace, love, beauty, but not with a fight and stabbing. His murderers should suffer the most severe punishment! That ended such a young, beautiful, talented life is a monstrous absurdity and injustice.
