The Bolshoi Ballet's artistic director Sergei Filin left a Moscow hospital on Monday morning to move to a German clinic for further treatment after he suffered serious eye damage in an acid attack, Russian television reported.
Filin, wearing dark glasses and supported by his wife, left the hospital to fly to Germany, where he was set for his first medical examination later Monday.
"I feel good, I would even say excellent. If only my eyes saw a bit better," Filin told journalists outside the hospital, describing his vision as "foggy and blurred."
