Norwegian Chess Federation calls for Karjakin to be removed from competitions


MOSCOW, Sep 27 The Norwegian Chess Federation (NSF) called on the organizers of rating tournaments to suspend Grandmaster Sergey Karjakin and other chess players who support the special operation in Ukraine. On March 21, the International Chess Federation (FIDE) suspended Karjakin for six months because of his support for the special operation in Ukraine. Last week, the disqualification came to an end, but the chess player said that he did not plan to play in international competitions under a neutral flag. This applies to all ranking tournaments in Norway and the Federation strongly recommends that all other organizers follow the same line,” the NSF said in a statement.
