Being gay in Russia isn't easy but Kasatkina found the strength and courage to come out. "Living in the closet is impossible. Not for the long run, no. It is too hard. It is pointless, you will be completely focused on that until you choose to come out.

Kravchenko asked Kasatkina directly if she was in a relationship with a girl, to which Kasatkina said yes. "Yes, [I currently have a girlfriend]," Kasatkina admitted. Russia isn't really a country that is very welcome to the LGBT population.
