Russian Championships - list of competitors

It's less than a month till Russian Championships and we now have a list of competitors.
The list is in Russian, so here I'm listing notable WAG competitors in English for those of you who can't read Cyrillic alphabet. In bold are the national team members.
Paseka is listed as a competitor, which is a surprise as she only recently started training. I guess, she'll maybe do a vault and that's it.
Afanasyeva isn't on the list and I don't think she's been training after the wedding (she definitely wasn't at the Round Lake). I personally suspect that she's either already pregnant or will be soon and we shouldn't expect her to return, but who knows.
Nabieva, although on the NT reserve, isn't on the list either. It's weird, because Nabieva always tries to help her city place well at the regionals (I think it affects their funding). There were rumors she's injured, so that might be the reason.
We won't see Komova, Kharenkova, Perebinosova or Sokova (what's happening with her? Is she even training anymore or her focus is now solely on youtube videos?), but there will be Sosnitskaya.
