Okay so I haven't seen the subs yet but I don't understand why people suddenly jumped to "oh Yuuri is breaking up with Victor" and thought it was a rational conclusion. Yuuri's been thinking about retiring this entire time. Since literally episode 3. Regardless or whether or not he actually does, he's anyways been thinking of having Victor step down as his coach after the GPF since episode 4 and especially episode 9 (where he said he'd tell Victor regardless of whether or not he wins). In Yuuri's head, is not right for him to "keep Victor away from the ice." He loves Victor so much that he's willing to let him go, so Victor can be happy as well. This is Yuuri giving Victor the option of returning to skating, should he so wish. Victor's response remains to be seen--as I believe Victor himself is unsure of what he really wants.
But you know what is certain? Their engagement. They got engaged the previous night, and Victor expressed his intention to marry Yuuri after the GPF in plain words. Even in the previews for the next episode we see them still wearing their rings. Yuuri's decision of "let's end this" has nothing to do with their personal relationship. They're still engaged.
I'm actually somewhat relieved that Yuuri told Victor now, before the Free Skate, because it's been a huge source of anxiety for him. It gives Victor a chance to understand, and to reassure Yuuri that regardless of what happens, they're going to be together throughout it. It's a weight off Yuuri's shoulders, and once he gets that reassurance from Victor, he's going to be able to skate without any burdens. Remember, his theme is Love. And Love Wins.
And one more thing to always keep in mind:
"Hanarezuni sobani ite." It's their song.

So, imagine a character who survives a shoot-off with Clint Barton, a.k.a. Hawkeye.
Imagine a character who challenges Nick Fury and
calls out Tony Stark, and whom they respect enough not to mock off-hand.
Imagine a character who blackmails the World Security Council rather
than knifing her boss in the back.
Imagine a character who
hides out among a heavily armed enemy so she can rescue Captain America,
the Black Widow, and the Falcon on a day when they’re one TV crew away
from public execution, and whom a national hero trusts to sacrifice him
in order to save three million people.
Imagine a character
who’s trusted enough to criticise Captain America, who’s a
barefoot-while-wearing-Cap’s-jacket-drinking-and-teasing level of
friends with the Avengers, and who casually picks glass splinters out of
her bare feet whileholding a discussion on world security.
Imagine a plain old ordinary human doing all this in a world of ‘supers’.
Now imagine this character not being recognised for it - either in-universe, or out of it by writers or fandom.
Allah (swt) knows what your silent heart wants. Even if you don’t include it in your prayers. He hears what your heart whispers. He may not give it to you now but someday, when you least expect it, things will happen in the best possible way!
