Russian women's student national team head coach Alexei Chistyakov:

Russian women's student national team defender Nina Pirogova:

- It's great to see our fans at the stadium. Switzerland aren't easy opponents, we simply managed to use our goalscoring opportunities when they came our way. My hat trick? Thanks to my teammates for making that happen. Inside the group, we have a positive, warm atmosphere, and we're looking forward to play China in the next match. We have travelled here to win.

Russian women's student national team forward Anna Shokhina:

- We all feel great after winning by such a big score. Thank you to the fans for their support, it was fantastic. Can we compare the atmosphere at the Winter Universiade to the one we see at the World Championship? Of course, the matches all mean the same. We like everything here.
