On January 20, first President of Kalmykia, sixth President of FIDE Kirsan Ilyumzhinov arrived on a business visit to Tehran.

Iranian friends met him at Imam Khomeini Tehran International Airport. Ilyumzhinov stayed at Espinas Hotel.
During the visit, the parties intend to discuss a number of important business issues. A number of meetings with Iranian business partners have already been planned. Ilyumzhinov, as always, has a busy schedule of meetings with representatives of Iranian business circles.
Humanitarian projects will also be discussed. Recall that negotiations on the organization of a traveling exhibition of the Museum of Fine Arts of Iran were held in February 2020. But then the pandemic thwarted the plans.

Kirsan Ilyumzhinov shared a wonderful video with the tiger cub Kirsan, who is 2 months old. In November 2020, the tiger cub was born in the Moscow zoo almost dead. He couldn’t breathe. When the baby was born, his mother tigress did not recognize him and refused to feed him.

“The tiger cub, whom the tigress mother abandoned at birth, now has several adoptive parents and they are all human! The cub was born at the zoo. They thought that he would not survive for he was barely alive. But zoo employees, animal advocates and sponsors came to his rescue. They took the new-born tiger to the veterinary clinic, where he was nursed for a month. And they won!” Ilyumzhinov said.

The State Duma proposed to popularize intellectual sports in Russia. "The number of people involved in intellectual sports depends on the authorities," said a member of the State Duma Committee on Physical Culture and Sports, Tourism and Youth Affairs Marat Bariev. According to the parliamentarian, chess was promoted in Kalmykia by first president of the republic and sixth FIDE president Kirsan Ilyumzhinov. According to the deputy, chess and checkers need to be popularized at the all-Russian level. Since September 1, 2019, the Ministry of Education has made chess a subject in many schools. Russian first-graders now study chess for 33 hours a year, students in the second and fourth grades do it for an hour more.

30 years ago, the law "On Property in the RSFSR" was adopted. For the first time since 1917, it legalized private property in Russia. By that time, the law on cooperation was already in force and the first legal millionaires were making huge money. "Komsomolskaya Pravda" wrote about Artyom Tarasov, Ilya Medkov, Alexander Smolensky, German Sterligov and, of course, Kirsan Ilyumzhinov.

The first president of Kalmykia and the sixth head of FIDE was born into the family of an employee of the Elista city committee of the CPSU. After the army, Ilyumzhinov studied at MGIMO. As he recalls, it was there that he got the idea of how to make the first million.

On January 13, first President of Kalmykia, sixth President of FIDE Kirsan Ilyumzhinov met with the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Islamic Republic of Iran to Russia Kazem Jalali at the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

During the meeting, the parties discussed the substantive part of the working agenda of Ilyumzhinov's upcoming business visit to Tehran, which is scheduled for early this year.
Recall that on December 2, Kirsan Ilyumzhinov met with the Ambassador of Iran Kazem Jalali at the Iranian Embassy in Moscow. Then the parties discussed the possibilities for the implementation of humanitarian and economic projects.

On the eve of the Old New Year, January 13, the First Channel aired Let Them Talk show dedicated to New Year's wishes. Miracles happen! The New Year's dream of a young chess player - six-year-old Islam Khasanov from the Tyumen region - came true. The boy decided to visit the capital of our state and meet with sixth FIDE President Kirsan Ilyumzhinov. The large Khasanov family was invited to Moscow.

The Khasanov family is known as a chess family: Emil, Ramil and Islam study at MAU DO "Youth Sports School of Yarkov Municipal District" while the younger Aziz is just learning the basics of the intellectual game.
Emil and Ramil are multiple champions and prize-winners of regional competitions. Islam is the champion of the region, a participant in the regional competitions "Young Stars". He is showing great promise in chess.


I know there's nothing I can say, but Let them talk show refutes this. Real, non-fictional stories touch people more than pretentious arguments on general topics, because when they bring up a particular problem of an individual or a family, it concerns everyone without exception.

Let Them Talk show is one of the highest rated on Russian television. The main goal of the show is to help real people with real problems and troubles in life.

Dear Sergey! From the bottom of my heart I wish you happy birthday! 31 years is a significant figure, and although people of your age are considered to be very young, this is a step towards maturity, towards the accumulation of experience and new achievements and victories.

On this solemn and joyful day, please accept my admiration for your magnificent chess talent, exceptional diligence, fighting qualities and stamina in the face of the most serious tests.
