– What is missing from the popularization of chess right now?
– I really do not agree with this way of posing the question. On the contrary, it seems to me that chess is quite popular now. The media write about them much more than a few years ago. Yes, and in popular culture you can observe interest in them. Of course, due to the specifics of sports in terms of entertainment, it is difficult for us to compete with football, hockey and figure skating, but I still see progress in this matter.
