This morning Pravda.ru reports that Filin is now being moved to Germany for further medical care. I get a gateway timeout message for all Pravda.ru articles but if the links begin to function I will post here.

Also a new article:

Sergei Filin's family is now being protected by private bodyguards. They have not received additional threats but precautions are being taken for his wife and sons.

Another update today from Vechernaya Moskva (Evening Moscow):

Filin's bandages have been removed but a 5th eye operation is scheduled for Friday Feb. 1. The doctor says his eyes must remain closed while they heal post-op. This article doesn't mention his transfer to Germany. It does mention that Bolshoi employees refused to undergo lie detector tests (which is their right to refuse under Russian law).

Sergei Filin has now publicly stated that Nikolai Tsiskaridze was not his attacker and he very much regrets the media attention that centred on him as prime suspect.

I wait with bated breath for the apologies due to Mr Tsiskaridze from the UK press, but somehow I doubt he will receive any.

Live Russian interview with Filin today as he is flown to Germany for rehabilitation.

http://www.vesti.ru/videos?vid=483326

Filin says that his appearance doesn't concern him at all and will not, does not change his heart or his personality, and he remains the same person, husband, father as he always has been. He says he sees through a "film" now and it's very difficult to open his eyes but he's impressed with the level of treatment he received from the Russian physicians.
