A day before, on December, 26 Prime-minister of the Russian Federation signed a decree on granting An Hyeon Soo Russian citizenship.
An Hyeon Soo is a Korean skater.
Now he join Russian skate team and takes part in Russian Championship holding now in Kolomna city. He ranked 14th in 500 m race and 9th in 1500 m race.
According to Russian law everyone who was naturalized should choose a Russian name. An Hyeon Soo got his Russian passport as An Victor, what means “winner”. I hope his new name will help him to get gold medal on Sochi Olympic Games!!!~
