Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,
Interfax news agency has just reported that the head of Fide has announced the creation of the International Chess Party! Datelines Kiev, the report states that President of the International Chess Federation (FIDE) Kirsan Ilyumzhinov announced the creation in Ukraine of a Chess Party, which does not set out to fight for power, and to unite thinking people and in future to become international.

"The purpose of my visit to Ukraine is opening a chess academy in the village of Klesov, Rovenska area. The second is to announce the creation of a Chess Party. There are democratic parties, communist parties, and now there will be a chess party. Why in Ukraine? Because I received proposal by Klesov, which will come in history not only of chess, but also of political thought. This party will be international. I would call it "chess party of the world," the head of FIDE said.
