“They treated Drobyazko very badly. This is the conscience of those who want to strip Margarita of her citizenship. But they can’t deprive him of the European Championship. How is this possible? Who are they to keep him out? This should at least be decided by the International Skating Union and not by Lithuania. I perceive this entire story as Lithuania’s window dressing. They just reminded us of ourselves,” Rodnina said.

On July 28, Lithuanian Minister of Internal Affairs Agne Bilotaite appealed to the country’s president with a request to strip Margarita Drobyazko of her citizenship for participating in Tatiana Navka’s show. On September 15, President of the Republic of Lithuania Gitanas Nausėda signed a decree depriving the figure skater of citizenship.
