It is always easier to criticize than to do something. For the most part, everything suits me, especially since we still have a rather individual sport. Despite this, I have normal relations with most chess players and with many I am friendly. Professionally, I have been receiving support from the Russian Chess Federation for many years, for which I am very grateful,” Esipenko said in an interview with Sovetsky Sport correspondent Daria Savinova.
Recall that grandmaster Sergey Karyakin criticized the activities of the Russian Chess Federation on social networks. In his opinion, several managers, particularly CEO Mark Glukhovsky, are not doing his job.
