Max Kitsyn is almost fluid in English or I should say was. When a Russian kid leaves NA and goes back home for the first time they typically don't speak allot of English and imo tend to backslide a little. That said MK was speaking English fine this past July. That I can say is a fact.
Thanks for your reply. Kitsyn needs to pull a porky pronto
