NEW YORK, November 1 (Itar-Tass) - Russian model Yevgenia Vavrinyuk, who said she was assaulted by Colorado Avalanche Hockey League goalie Semyon Varlamov, told a Denver Post correspondent that she feared to return to Russia.
The hockey goalie is suspected of domestic violence against his girlfriend Vavrinyuk. The court ordered him not to contact her and not to take firearms with him when traveling in the country. On Thursday, he was released from jail on a 5,000-dollar bail.
The girl said Varlamov had kicked her, stomped her in the chest and dragged her by the hair across the floor in her Denver apartment. He laughed and did not realize what he was doing as he was drunk.
According to Vavrinyuk, it was not the first case when Varlamov assaulted her. They had brawls in Yaroslavl, Russia. Varlamov drunk much and behaved inadequately, she said. Police were called several times, and there were witnesses, but he got away with it. On summer holiday in the Maldives, he drunk very much and dragged her by the hair and assaulted in other ways. It was the fifth time, she said.
"I fear to return to Russia as I and my mother have received a lot of threats (from hockey fans). I cannot believe that fans support Varlamov," Vavrinyuk said. "In the Unites States I feel myself safe. We have known each other for four years, but have been together only for a year. I loved him and hoped he would change."
"I worked as a model in Hong Kong but I broke the contract when Varlamov asked to move to him to reside together," she said. In her words, he drunk much and did not know when to stop.
According to Vavrinyuk, she appealed to police not to get his money, but she wanted him to be imprisoned. "It may happen in the United States, as women are defended here," she concluded.
