Arkady Dvorkovich did the right thing by deciding to be re-elected to the post of President of the International Chess Federation (FIDE). This was announced to RBC Sport by the twelfth world chess champion, Anatoly Karpov.

“Arkady Dvorkovich has already submitted his candidacy. He did the right thing. I do not understand why he should not have participated in the elections. It is clear that the European countries will be against it, the United States will be against it, but there are 191 countries in the International Chess Federation. In order to win, he must get around 97 votes. It is not known who will be his opponent. But if we talk about the situation, then for some reason we believe that Russia is isolated. I can not agree with this. You have to try it,” Karpov said.

Karpov responded to Swiss minister’s call to exclude Russians from IOC

The head of the International Chess Federation (FIDE), Arkady Dvorkovich, presented his candidacy for a new mandate.

The election of the FIDE president will take place at the federation’s general assembly on August 7-8 in the Indian city of Chennai. Applications to participate in the elections must be submitted no later than June 7.

Dvorkovich has been FIDE President since October 2018. Previously, he served as Deputy Prime Minister of Russia, Chairman of the Skolkovo Foundation, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Russian Railways, and Assistant to the President of Russia. From 2007 to 2010, he was Vice President of the Russian Chess Federation (RCF) and from 2010 to 2014, Chairman of the Supervisory Board.

In March, FIDE suspended the Russian and Belarusian national teams from team competitions under its auspices. At the same time, Russian and Belarusian chess players can play in individual tournaments in a neutral state. In addition, the federation banned the holding of any tournaments in Russia and Belarus under its auspices.
