Head of FIDE thanks Governor of Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous District Natalia Komarova

Dear Natalia Vladimirovna! I express my gratitude for the organizing and holding of the World Team Championships 2017.

For the first time, two such magnificent events in the chess world took place simultaneously. Executive management of the organizing committee, represented by UgraMegaSport, proved once again that it is ready to hold tournaments of any level.

I congratulate you on the successful completion of the tournaments and hope for long-term and mutually beneficial cooperation for development of chess!

Yours faithfully,
FIDE President Kirsan Ilyumzhinov
