The sixth FIDE President wrote a letter of thanks to S7 Airlines. The letter reads as follows:

“I want to express my sincere gratitude to the management and employees of S7 Airlines for the “Hero's Flight” initiative held on Victory Day.
It was with great excitement and joy that I learned that one of these flights is dedicated to the memory of my grandfather, the front-line soldier Dorzha Ilyumzhinov.


Thank you for the kind words and for the memory. For not forgetting those who participated in the bloody battles in the harsh years of military trials, gaining the victory at a high price.

I am sure that the descendants of the heroes, whose names are borne by your flights on these holidays, will always be proud of them and keep in their hearts the memory of their great feat.
Your initiative helps to strengthen the patriotic feelings of our young people, while older people are tremendously proud of their fathers and grandfathers who won the terrible war and saved the world from Nazism.”
