Medvedeva reveals her mixed feelings

Russian female figure skater Evgenia Medvedeva, a silver medalist at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics, made global headlines after posting an anti-war message on her Instagram account. She updated her Instagram to reveal her mixed feelings.

‘It takes positivity to overcome negativity. Remember that.”

These are the words of American actor Jared Leto. Medvedeva posted these words along with a picture of herself skating in a black sleeveless outfit. And the message continues.

‘It’s hard to find something positive in these tough times. But I really want to distract myself with something positive and cheerful.

Medvedeva was born in Moscow, Russia in 1999, her father is Armenian and her mother is Russian; she started figure skating when she was around 3 years old and won two consecutive World Championships in 2016 and 2017. She reigned as the undefeated absolute queen, but Alina Zagitova, who emerged like a comet, continued her rapid ascent and ended up with a silver medal at the Pyeongchang Olympics.

Medvedeva is also known for her love of Japanese anime and Ghibli movies. In particular, she is a big fan of “Sailor Moon,” and performed in a Sailor Moon costume at Dream on Ice in 2016.

In this context, Medvedeva recently posted a text on Instagram that smacked of protest against Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Medvedeva posted this black image using the Stories function on Instagram. On that black screen, she added the message, “Like a bad dream, I hope it all ends as soon as possible.

The post was met with some concern from fans. Criticizing the regime in Russia is a big risk. And she is a very famous person. Will she be in danger because of this statement? Even some Russian citizens, who are positive about the war, would have looked at her harshly.

Incidentally, Medvedeva will participate in the ice shows on April 15 and 16. Many fans may be relieved to know that Medvedeva is safe and sound for the time being. For now, we can only pray for her safety and world peace.
