Ilyumzhinov promotes chess in the Perm region

Kirsan Ilyumzhinov told to Life.ru reporter that he was ready to assist promotion of chess in the Perm region.

"In the nearest future, I will write a letter to the head of the region and will send the Director of FIDE Representative office in Russia Berik Balabayev and the director of the ‘Chess in Schools’ foundation Nikita Kim. All support will be provided," promised the President of FIDE.

Besides, Ilyumzhinov offered his assistance after he knew that a local reporter had complained about the unsatisfactory state of chess sport in the Perm region during the press conference of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
