Governor Savchenko invites Ilyumzhinov to Belgorod region

Dear Kirsan Nikolaevich! Thank you for your interest in our region and appreciation of our social and economic achievements.

The thoughtful work, which you carry out for the propagation and popularization of chess, is of great international importance. We fully support your proposal for the establishment of mutually beneficial cooperation between FIDE and the Belgorod region.
I am convinced that the implemented chess programmes will have a good educational effect and serve to strengthen the intellectual potential of the region.

I express my willingness to meet with you and discuss all issues related to our future joint activities.

Truly yours,
Belgorod Region Governor Yevgeny Savchenko
