Karpov: "Ilyumzhinov's rivals conduct a dirty struggle for power in FIDE"

The opponents of FIDE President Kirsan Ilyumzhinov conduct a dirty struggle for power in FIDE. The opinion was expressed by the Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs, the 12th World Chess Champion Anatoly Karpov.

"When Kirsan was included in the sanction list, he temporarily resigned. And now they try to use it as a pretext for crooked tricks. This is some kind of dirty struggle for power," Karpov said.
