Katya’s story is a useful one for being able to tell which’re the Reasons that Must not be Named

Aus has a tendency of sweeping things under the rug (being literally a country founded for the sole purpose of being Britain’s dusty rug for undesirables]

This report is the only one who identifies her sex as being relevant to her demise

& damn right it is

Katyusha was a baby millenial >unsurprising that her health unravelled even more rapidly than the generational average of 27. Switching to clogged Western food from pristine Rus. goodness must’ve done her no favours either. I started experiencing mild physical +serious social fatigue (signs of progressing AI) already 4 years after arriving here~ just like her

On top of health her issue was cash. By switching to the Aussie flag she lost her rus. skater salary. Once she quit competing for OZ~=double trouble as whichever sponsorhip she was running on here must’ve stopped as well. Wild guess that it could’ve been an Aboriginal one (in that case i’d forgive her very, very mildly Native partner for harping on about it like we were blind to his near total white-ness. U really gotta be barrel-scraping with his what ?1/64?1/125?? )

Covid trapped her in Moscow. While russians’re lucky in not facing being homeless generally, ( [she could always live in her mother’s flat, i guess) that metropolis runs on sky-high living cost> after unsuccessful travails into coaching +TV work, poor girl was reduced to that pit of pits {stripping}. Which is depressing enough on its’ own, without the added doom of facing a lifetime of epileptic fits & not being able to go with her calling, which consumed her life since 4 y.o. & provided that addictive adrenaline + steely focus Olympic athletes struggle without, when quitting. Add on not being able to bank on her newly minted citizenship in the country she single-handedly put on the Ice Map, as big island barred itself off for untold period of time

Aside from the list of rational reasons, there could’ve been one other….


after a lengthy foray into brainwashing about chemical imbalances we’ve been treated to an admission that 1/3 of clinical depressive cases stem from the above (caused by omni-present AI}. Specifically it can manifest in short-acting suicidal fits, which come on&pass so fast that u might change mind before u finish soaping that rope

Unfortunately for Katen’ka ,she had a method available which required 0 prep. She stepped off a 6th storey ledge after writing a single-word note, not even specifying whom it is she stated she loved

i’m all for rational self-ethnanausia, but my deduction leads me to believe that this was not a case of that. Apart from identifying w. her heavily .`i’m also bummed out about 2 things:

1)she is someone i could’ve helped in deed, if i’d only known. I’m suitably equipped in quite a few things relevant to her case. She’s the last of the Mohicans of my generation going by her DOB & the separation of young lasses of the sort who gets lost in the shuffle`is achingly saddening

2) i really liked her pairing. I must be able to connect w. skaters to enjoy the work,& she +Harley were charmers w. a wonderful friendly chemistry& ability to interpret music. (They used lyrics on 2 occasions, which nobody in pairs does). HERE’S them rocking it to Adele

3) Harley’s a likable kid w. quality blading goods,but the Rus. door is closed to him now. Russkies’re superstitious, > 👩🏼‍🌾there is no way in hell another partner from there ‘ll touch him w. a Zamboni now
