The Russian chess player will not oppose the CBO for the sake of participating in tournaments


MOSCOW, Oct 3, Oleg Bogatov. I agree with the position of the President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Thomas Bach on the admission of Russians to participate in international competitions and, therefore, will not be able to compete in such tournaments. Bach earlier in an interview with the Italian edition of Corriere della Sera said that Russian athletes who do not support the special operation in Ukraine, it is necessary to allow participation in international tournaments in a neutral status. Artemiev on Sunday became the winner of the rapid tournament in Moscow, held as part of Chess Stars 2022. independently, and other industries should not depend on it. I know many chess players from other countries who think the same way. And they do not support such a massive suspension of Russians. I don’t feel very good about this either, but what can we do. Now this is the situation in the world that further sanctions may be adopted. But at the same time, it is very disappointing, because in fact (other) military conflicts do not end, and such global sanctions have been adopted only against Russia.”
