Kirsan Ilyumzhinov on a trip to Mongolia: What's left behind the scenes

In Ulan Bator, he met with the President of the Mongolian Chess Federation Gurvanbaatar Erdenebaatar and the Secretary General of the Enkhtuul Altan-Ulzii Federation, who came to the tournament in Kalmykia in 2009. She told how she met the great Boris Spassky there.

Gurvanbaatar Erdenebaatar presented me with Mongolian national chess, and Enkhtuul Altan-Ulzii presented me her book on teaching chess to children. The Mongolian Federation actively promotes the Chess in schools programme that I have developed.

I cordially congratulate the Mongolian Chess Federation on winning the first FIDE Intercontinental Prisoner Chess Championship on October 13-14. In the men's final, the Mongolian team defeated Zimbabwe and became the champion of the tournament. The Mongolian men's team won over the teams of Russia, the USA and Georgia. The championship was held as part of the Chess for Freedom programme.
