Kirsan Ilyumzhinov goes on a working visit to Bulgaria

On 29 November, the first president of Kalmykia, the sixth FIDE president Kirsan Ilyumzhinov arrived in the capital of Bulgaria, Sofia. In Bulgaria, Christmas and the New Year preparations are in full swing. The video shot in the lobby of the Sheraton Hotel shows how a puppet orchestra is preparing for a performance.
Kirsan Nikolayevich told our correspondent that, within the limited travel schedule, he intends to hold several important business meetings. According to Ilyumzhinov, he will meet with his Bulgarian friends also.


Editors’ note.  Later, we will post a few more photos taken during the closing of the Iranian club chess championship (Tehran. 28.11.2019). We received them today. Recall that during the closing of the championship, Kirsan Nikolayevich played a chess game with the champion of the tournament, and also wished success and victories to the Iranian Chess Federation and all Iranian chess players.
