Athletistic/ Others. Russian Grandmaster Sergey Karyakin reacted to the possible transition of the Russian Chess Federation, which is part of the European chess family, under the flags of the Asian Federation.

It should be noted that the final decision on changing the legal registration of the FSR will be made on February 28.

“The transition to the Asian Chess Federation itself is correct. We don’t have the opportunity to participate in European competitions. They oppress us in every way possible and let us know that we are not welcome there There is no point in pushing where we are not expected. Of course, it makes sense to move to the Asian Chess Federation. In fact, the competition is stronger there! China and India, in particular , are the countries where chess is most actively developing. We are winning in all respects,” Karjakin said as quoted by Sport24.
