He says that being in relationship with fellow Russian short track skater, Sofia Boitsova, is not always easy. "We still have small conflicts in everyday life, for example, everyone has their own vision of technique, their own thoughts about training. Roughly speaking: in the evening we drink tea and start arguing about how best to start. But we always find compromises, help each other. In this regard, it's even easier for us to be. In general, we find pluses in all places." (, 14 Jun 2022)
