Russian Federation President Filatov about Dvorkovich: I go around and around, I want to deceive 12:31

International Chess Federation (FIDE) President Arkady Dvorkovich did not fulfill his promise to lift the sanctions of the Russian Chess Federation (RFC). In an interview about this TASS said Andrei Filatov, head of the FSR.

“The policies and actions of FIDE President Arkady Dvorkovich can be described by the phrase: “I turn and turn, I want to deceive.” Two years ago at the FIDE Congress in Chennai, five countries voted on the removal of sanctions against the FCR. Arkady Vladimirovich then did everything to prevent this from happening and promised to entrust this issue to the FIDE presidential council so that everything was resolved as quickly as possible. “However, so far the Presidential Council has not considered lifting sanctions and there is no positive dynamic in this direction,” he said.

The FCR president emphasized that the opposite process is observed, as the decisions of the FIDE ethics commission show. According to Filatov, a “critical” time is coming when Dvorkovich will show how valuable his actions, statements and promises are.

In February 2022, FIDE allowed Russian and Belarusian athletes to participate in international competitions with neutral status; At the same time, the national teams of Russia and Belarus are prohibited from participating in tournaments under the auspices of FIDE, and there are no official chess competitions in these countries.

On 7 June 2024, FIDE Ethics Commission announced the suspension of FCR’s membership in the organization for two years. This was explained by the fact that the FSR incorporated regional federations of new regions of Russia. The decision will enter into force 60 days after its adoption.

International federations are limiting the participation of Russian and Belarusian athletes in tournaments in accordance with the recommendations of the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Dvorkovich in December 2023 report He explained to that sanctions against Russian and Belarusian chess players were not lifted because FIDE did not want to conflict with chess federations and Olympic committees of other countries.

“FIDE covers nearly 200 countries, and for many of them relations with national Olympic committees are extremely important. We cannot ignore this and act in the interests of all our member countries and federations that are members of FIDE. We do not want to worsen the relationship between national chess federations and national Olympic committees in any way. Therefore, following the IOC recommendations is important for the chess community,” Dvorkovich said.

Previously ethics commission accepted Unfounded accusations against FIDE president Dvorkovich.
