On 15 January, the first President of Kalmykia, the sixth FIDE President Kirsan Ilyumzhinov paid a working visit to Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

As previously reported, Kirsan Ilyumzhinov controls a huge collection of exhibits of the Museum of Arts and Culture of Ancient Persia.
On 15 January, as part of a working visit to Tehran, Kirsan Ilyumzhinov received from Professor Hochimien the Power of Attorney for the management and disposal of the Museum's exhibits collection.

 

Alexandra Kosteniuk is a three-time world champion. Last year, the Russian won the European Blitz and Rapid Championships. When interviewed, she said:

"Fees in women's chess and, accordingly, the level of sports motivation have significantly increased after Kirsan Ilyumzhinov became FIDE president, - said Kosteniuk in an interview with matchtv.ru. There could be different opinions about him, but he has done a lot for women's chess.

 

Russian politician and businessman Kirsan Ilyumzhinov has the right to manage the exhibits of Iran's largest private Museum of Fine Arts. According to Ilyumzhinov, the relevant agreements were signed with Iranian partners on 29 December, 2019, during his trip to Tehran.

"The right to manage the exhibits was granted to me by the owner of the museum collection, Mr Hochimien," Kirsan Ilyumzhinov told NG. "My mission now is to advance in different countries the achievements of the culture of Ancient Persia, the Mughals, and the associated culture of the Mongol Empire."

 

A strange choice of officials who prefer to defend  the citizen of Cyprus Deripaska instead of patriot of Russia Ilyumzhinov?

Rumour has it that on the eve of Catholic Christmas, panic and hysteria reigned in the US treasury. It’s all because good fellow Oleg Borisovich Deripaska went to fight for justice and human rights with the overseas bureaucratic monster.

He filed a lawsuit against the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the US Treasury because of the unfair and illegal sanctions imposed on him last spring.

On 6 January 6, the first president of Kalmykia, the sixth president of FIDE Kirsan Ilyumzhinov flew to the People’s Republic of China. In Beijing, he held business negotiations with Chinese comrades, discussed a number of economic issues and business projects.

On 7 January, while in the city of Nanyang, Kirsan Nikolaevich congratulated everyone on Christmas. The text of the congratulation reads as follows:

 

With all my heart, I wish you a Merry Christmas! This is a celebration of joy and hope and foreboding of a great miracle. Christmas is a time of purity and light, love for one's neighbour, a time of care for all who need help.

May the soft and gentle light of the Star of Bethlehem illuminate everyone’s path, may it bring hope to the mourners, those who need it so much. May every house be illuminated with a Christmas star, may happiness and love live forever in every home!

The killing of the head of the special unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) General Qasem Soleimani by the Americans at the Baghdad airport will aggravate the crisis in the region, destroy the existing balance of forces and, most likely, provoke retaliatory violence. That’s what a Russian politician Kirsan Ilyumzhinov told to NG.

“The assassination of General Soleimani will not help resolve the problems. On the contrary, it will only aggravate them. We see today the destruction by Western countries of the already fragile political balance in the region. The consequences are unpredictable,” said Kirsan Ilyumzhinov. - You can’t kill people without trial, only bandits and terrorists do this.

 

Kirsan Ilyumzhinov greeted www.kirsan.today’s readers with a Happy New Year. The text of the greeting reads as follows:

“My dear friends! Like-minded people! Compatriots and fellow citizens! With all my heart, I wish you a Happy New Year! Seeing off the Old Year, let us forget all that hindered and complicated our life. Let us remember only the good that happened in the past year.
May the new 2020 year be a time of great discoveries, a time of faith, hope and love. Let the New Year shine with all the colours of happiness and wonderful wishes. May dreams inspire, may good fantasies become reality!

On 29 December, the first president of Kalmykia, the sixth president of FIDE Kirsan Ilyumzhinov arrived to Iran on a working trip.
