Athletistic/OI-2024. Famous sports journalist Elena Vaitsekhovskaya responded to the statement of grandmaster Sergei Karyakin.

Previously, the chess player expressed the opinion that Russian athletes should not participate in the Paris Olympic Games under a neutral flag.

“It seems like it’s time to get used to it, but no. Today, Grandmaster Karjakin is urging people not to go to the Olympics. Grandmaster Karjakin, I think, imagines what the Olympiad (and not the Chess Olympics) is purely hypothetical. However, he considers himself entitled to give advice on a cosmic scale.

Here Bulgakov’s famous quote from “Heart of a Dog” is in order, but out of respect for chess (in which grandmaster Karjakin has also not been so actively involved lately), I will not do it. Sorry, I’m tired of it, ”Vaitsekhovskaya wrote on her Telegram channel.

  • Karjakin explained why he is not worried about being kicked out of the FIDE rankings
