Vladimir Kramnik Chess School in Russia Soon!

Hello chess blog friends, a chess school named after former world chess champion Vladimir Kramnik will start in Russia in about six months. Vladimir Kramnik was quoted by the Russian Chess Federation website:

"This is a very ambitious project. I speak again with the governor of the Krasnodar Territory, Alexander Tkachev. Done in school are children from all over the region, who want to learn to play chess, especially - professionally. There are plans to open six branches. In general, the structure has been created, but, of course, there is still a lot of organizational work."

The former World Chess Champion said the chess school is likely to be functional in about six months. The former world champion mentioned that the school would be possible by support and collective effort of a strong and committed team which was already working hard. Kramnik also said, not just chess coaches from the region, but those from outside would also be invited as guest lecturers at the chess school.

So, do we have more Russian world champions coming now soon from the Krasnodar region? Best wishes to GM Vladimir Kramnik with his chess school project.
