An unidentified attacker threw sulphuric acid in Sergei Filin's face in Moscow on January 17, as he was returning home from work.
Mr Filin, speaking today after being discharged from a Moscow hospital where he underwent several operations, said he suspected who was behind the attack but would not mention any names as the inquiry is ongoing.
Wearing sunglasses and with a bandage under his chin, he said he is still seeing as if through a mist as his eye treatment is continuing.
He said his wife will accompany him on a flight to Germany where he will continue his recovery.
