Head of FIDE congratulates Governor of Tula region Alexei Dyumin

Dear Alexey Gennadievich! Let me sincerely congratulate you on your birthday!

The power of the country has always depended not so much on its economic and military potential but on loyal to the Fatherland statesmen, who are working for its interests and for the benefit of citizens. No one can doubt the great future of our country and the prosperity of its people as long as there are people like you in the Russian government.

I wish you, dear Alexey Gennadievich, good health and further professional success. I wish you always have close friends and like-minded people. I wish happiness and prosperity to your family and friends!

FIDE President

Kirsan Ilyumzhinov
