The world champion in chess from Russia: On the Crimean question I entirely on side of Ukraine


The newly made world champion in fast chess Daniil Dubov commented on holding a world championship in Russia. the 22-year-old Russian chess player Daniil Dubov who became the day before the world champion in fast chess called the Crimean peninsula Ukrainian. – You called the World Cup in Saudi Arabia shameful. To St. Petersburg there did not arrive several Ukrainians – probably, they consider holding this championship in Russia shameful too. How, from your point of view to solve this problem of FIDE? Where to hold tournaments that for anybody was not shameful? And where your personal side behind which unacceptable begins? – Yes, I understood your question, I speculated on this subject much. For me there is no contradiction. Though, certainly, on the Crimean question I entirely on side of Ukraine. But there is no contradiction because for me chess it is simple more important than policy. You see, it is possible to speak about military aggression and so on, but, whatever one may do, Russia is the country with huge chess traditions, and they were and will be. Holding a tournament in Russia – it is quite good for chess. You see, there is a certain image of chess. It is possible to treat Russia differently...– To Russia as to the state. – Yes. That is I love the country, but, certainly, recently we have less reasons for pride. It's true. But, nevertheless, subjectively it seems to me that the image of chess is not harmed by holding a tournament in Russia. Most of world champions in chess were from Russia. It is a lot of tournaments in Russia, it is a lot of strong chess players from Russia... That is in Russia chess, in principle, on the place. And history – it changes. Just we live during such period, and for history all this nonsense. Well will pass years two hundred, well there will be an episode with the Crimea, well it is a shame and. But it will pass – and traditions will remain. And in this plan there is no problem, – chess-news.ruotmetim cites words of Dubov that Daniil – the member of youthful Russian national team on chess. In 2009 Daniil won the junior Olympic Games up to 16 years.
