The Russian team enjoyed the victory in Osaka to the national anthem. 

Russian figure skaters needed to hear the Russian anthem and see the country's flag during the award ceremony at the World Team Championships in Osaka. Team captain Elizaveta Tuktamysheva told reporters about this after the tournament.

The ban on the use of state symbols and the anthem of Russia at world championships is valid until December 2022, however, the tournament in Japan does apply to this category . Its original name is World Team Trophy, it unofficially bears the status of the World Championship.

“This is a very important competition for us, and it important that there was a Russian flag on it. We are happy that our anthem sounded, we needed it and  enjoyed this moment,  - said Tuktamysheva.
