After Rio

So, what's happening with the Russian team after Rio?
Mustafina, Paseka, Tutkhalian and Kuksenkov gave short interviews right before they went to Kremlin to get their awards and brand-new cars.
The whole team - those who don't take a break after the Olympics - will go to Spain on 3/09 for a training camp. Mustafina is not going as she's taking a break. She's going on vacation to Sochi instead - that's where her boyfriend trains. She was invited to participate in the gymnastics show organized by Aleksey Nemov  on 16/09 (Khorkina and Zamolodchikova will participate among others), but didn't want to cancel her break, so she's not participating.
Paseka says her health is much worse than before and she's focusing on rehab for her back.
Seda and Angelina aren't taking any breaks they are going to Spain with the team.
Kuksenkov was asked about relationship with Ukrainian athletes (as he's originally from Ukraine but moved to Russia after London) and he says that they're still good friends, there's no animosity.
