Ilyumzhinov congratulates women on March 8

Dear women! From the bottom of my heart, I congratulate you on the most spring holiday of the year – the International Women's Day! You are the most amazing and beautiful, strong and gentle. How unbearably sad and joyless life would be without you!

Actually, if not for you there would be no life on our planet. The human race lives, scientific discoveries are made and great works of art are created because of your love, your strength and wisdom.

You are our main source of inspiration. Your beauty and tenderness, support and love are the most priceless things in the world. Dear women, we sincerely wish you happiness and health! Let your dreams come true!
I wish strong health to your children, relatives and friends. And please know that our respect for you is immense and our admiration is genuine and boundless. I wish you to be surrounded by love, attention and care of people close to you! Be loved and happy!

President of the International Chess Federation (FIDE)
