The pressball published an interview [in Russian] featuring Anastasia Ziazulkina of Belarus: 

- Just recently Anna Sarevic announced changing of the federation, from now on she will be representing the US team. If you were offered rewarding financial conditions would you agree to play under the foreign flag? 
- I think I wouldn't. The native soil is important for me. I was invited to study in US, it was possible to arrange it. I declined that offer. Well, you never no what can happen but money is absolutely not the key point here. There's an aphorism: everything that is possible to buy is already cheap.  

- So IM Ziazulkina is a patriot of her country, isn't she? 
- You know, there's a game on the radio "The Night Stakes". People who have called are asked if they believe or not in something to happen. Recently one woman was asked whether she believed that Belarusian hockey team would defeat the American one. She said: "Of course not!". She guessed the outcome and received a prize. I wouldn't put such a stake. You should keep hoping that your compatriots will win. And more importantly you shouldn't be saying something as she did for the entire country to hear it. The thoughts do materialize after all."
