Photo: Mikhail Mettsel / TASS Arkady Dvorkovich became the main thing on chess. The former Russian Deputy Prime Minister is elected the new president of the International chess federation. He has bypassed the rival of the vice-president of FIDE Georgios Makropulos: 103 voices against 78, one voice was invalid. Makropulos even prior to vote said that fight went in dishonest conditions: allegedly federations forced to give the vote for his opponent. But in Federation of chess of Georgia, for example, it was disproved, having said that nobody helped them with the choice. Also British grand master Nigel Short had to participate in elections, however directly before vote he has acted in favor of Dvorkovich. The ex-head of FIDE Kirsan Ilyumzhinov has told Business FM that I am glad to a victory of the representative Rossii: — Team very balanced: in the Presidential Council, in a presidential tiket there are people who worked with me not one year, there are new people. The main task which we had set in due time are chess at schools, kindergartens, chess for disabled people, chess in each village. I carry out this idea all the time, I propagandize — one billion chess players. I hope that after all one billion on the planet will learn to play chess. Now 600 million play. — Fight from Makropulos was intense, in any case from the information party. As far as did his approach differ? — It seems to me, quietly elections have taken place. On the one hand, Makropulos worked with me, 21 years were the first vice-president, he needed just to change team, and the same old people remained. And Dvorkovich has changed, the fresh, new ideas have appeared. And Dvorkovich [has] fact that Makropulos has seen off together with me — promotion, development of chess also. Just Dvorkovich is slightly fresher, is newer, younger therefore it is great that new, fresh blood has come to world chess. Dvorkovich not the beginner in the world of chess. His father Vladimir Dvorkovich was the international chess arbitrator, the chairman of board of judges of the Russian chess Federation. He was the first vice-president of federation, and since 2010 heads her supervisory board. Now Dvorkovich holds a post of the chairman of the board of directors of the Russian Railway, the cochairman of Skolkovo Foundation. I was the chairman of the organizing committee of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Support to Dvorkovich on elections of the head of FIDE was expressed by the FIFA president Gianni Infantino.
