ETA always throws me as I immediately think 'Estimated Time of Arrival'. I'm okay with the others though.

Does anyone remember the meaning of OT?

Maybe this scintillating subject deserves its own topic thread

A new interview with N. Tsiskaridze:

http://www.bbc.co.uk...europe-21381513

"It's like being back in the days of Josef Stalin," Tsiskaridze tells me. "They're organising meetings against me, they're trying to force staff to sign letters condemning me - they tried that last week. But all the ballet teachers in the Bolshoi refused to sign it."

After last month's acid attack on the Bolshoi's artistic director Sergei Filin, Tsiskaridze says the management began "dropping hints" that he was somehow involved.

"They decided to use this as an excuse for a witch hunt," he tells me, "to get rid of all the people they don't like.


It is also reported that Filin has undergone another eye surgery in Germany:

The Bolshoi Theatre’s artistic director Sergei Filin, who recently suffered an acid attack, has successfully undergone an eye surgery in Germany, a source close to Russia’s Healthcare ministry said Friday. Filin was operated on by a Russian and a German eye-surgeons.

Essentially the same story here with some video. I found the statement from the press person very interesting.

the lawsuits are coming, and in Russia, I think the judiciary is compromised towards the bureaucracy in place. I don't think this is going to go Nikolai's way.

I watched this interview on BBC Breakfast Show and again now using the links and noticed that it has been edited. Some scenes, including his rehearsal with the pupils, have been cut out:

I found the statement from the press person very interesting.


I also found something intresting in the official (!) press officer' statement. In response to Tsiskaridze’s claim that the management advised his pupils to go to another teacher she started her denial of it with the words: "What the rumours are saying..."

Well, that's a good point about whether or not acid was used in the attack. I would have expected Filin's face to have been severely burned if it was splashed with acid. Weak solution? Some other liquid?

I believe earlier reports suggested that much damage was prevented because he was able to immediately flush his face with snow that was piled on the ground, diluting some of the effects.

That makes good sense.
