FILE - A Tuesday, May 22, 2007 file photo showing Russia's Svetlana Lunkina and Ruslan Skvortsov performing at a gala of the Prix Benois de la Danse competition at the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow. Lunkina, who is now in Canada, has sent a letter to the Bolshoi asking it to extend her leave because she fears to return to Russia after receiving threats. Lunkina's move follows an attack earlier this month on Bolshoi's artistic director Sergei Filin, who received heavy burns after an unknown assailant threw acid at his face.
