This was reported by the press service of the Russian Figure Skating Federation (FFKKR).

The cause of the choreographer's death was a disease that is not named.

Avdysh worked as the artistic director of the ballet at the St. Petersburg Music Hall, as well as a coach-choreographer for the St. Petersburg national figure skating team.

He worked with a group of coach Alexei Mishin, with whom Plushenko trained throughout his sports career.

Earlier, a petition was created with a request to remove Plushenko from participation in the Russian Cup.
