The Moldova Chess Federation Officially Announces Their Support for the “One World. One Vision.” Team.
The Moldova Chess Federation has officially announced its participation in the 39th Chess Olympiad, which shall take place in Khanty-Mansiysk, Russia.
Starting from 1992, the Republic of Moldova has been participating in all Chess Olympiads. The 39th Chess Olympiad is historic not only for chess players, but also for FIDE, as the Olympiad is concurrent with the elections in the International Chess Federation.
In this connection, the Moldova Chess Federation officially announces the support for their candidate at the FIDE Presidential elections.
Expressing deep respect to World Champion Anatoly Karpov, the Moldova Chess Federation, nevertheless, preserves, its position of the last 14 years, supporting the incumbent FIDE President, Mr. Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, who has been participating actively in the Moldova chess life all these years.
With the support of the FIDE President, Kishinev has hosted an interzonal women’s tournament (1995), 68th FIDE Congress (1997), European Women’s Individual Championship (2005) and other events. The historic moment for the Moldova chess community was an agreement between the Government of Moldova and FIDE to construct a chess palace in the city of Kishinev for holding international events of the highest level.
The Moldova Chess Federation is confident that the re-elected FIDE leadership shall provide a prosperous future for our national chess community and chess world as well as to all chess players of the world.
Gens Una Sumus.
