Many remember the 3-year-old boy prodigy from “The Very Best” TV show. This boy played chess even at the age of three, and not just that but at the masters’ level.

When Misha was only two years old, he watched how dad and grandfather played chess with great interest. Father and grandfather noticed it and put the boy next to them, explaining him the rules of the game. That’s how he began to play. After a couple of months, dad and grandfather began to lose to Misha. No, they didn’t give in, he just beat them.


I am often asked whom do I admire apart from my parents? There are people who make you to follow them, listen, study and analyse their path and work. One of such people is Kirsan Nikolaevich Ilyumzhinov @kirsan_ilyumzhinov.

He is a man who always has his own point of view and who is able to unite millions of people around him.

I have already posted my comment on this. But the main thing is that others have heard me, have joined and even intend to act together after quarantine ends.


Immediately after a post on our website, an email addressed to Kirsan Ilyumzhinov was sent to us from Belgorod. We are happy to publish it.

“Dear Kirsan Nikolaevich! I read on your website that today it’s time to organize chess competitions over the Internet, and that you propose holding tournaments between countries and continents. What an interesting offer!


The famous Bulgarian screenwriter and director of the film "Vanga as a Person and Phenomenon" Stoyan Petrov said that a state of emergency was introduced in his country until 13 May.

Petrov was a friend and translator of clairvoyant Vanga. As it turned out, 25 years ago, the predictor knew that the “crown (Corona in Bulgarian – Ed.) would crush the world”.
Stoyan Petrov said: “Vanga often said that there will be epidemics or pandemics caused by either new or old viruses. Previously, she also predicted the death of the Bulgarian king.
By the way, I attended the meeting of Vanga and then a very young businessman Kirsan Ilyumzhinov. I was a translator at this meeting. Ilyumzhinov then came to consult with whom he should work, and Vanga told him that he would be twice president.

I returned from a business trip abroad and found out that the chairman of the Supreme Council of Khakassia Vladimir Shtygashev made a statement at the session of the republican parliament justifying Stalinist repressions.

“Today is a very important day in the history of Tuva and for believers - the election of the eighth Kamba Lama.

Volgograd publishes an essay on the first Buddhist community in Volgograd: the Diamond Way Centre of the Karma Kagyu tradition. The story is very interesting and fascinatingly written.

Talking about the life of their Lama, members of the Kagyu Cargo Centre give examples: he prefers to buy coffee for 2 euros, rather than 10. He does not have a yacht or a palace, and gets his money only when tickets for lectures are sold. Moreover, the Lama transfers all income from his tours to various Buddhist projects.
