World Chess Championship 2014: Russian President Vladimir Putin sends Greetings

Hello chess blog friends, the Russian President has sent his greetings to guests and participants of the World Chess Championship 2014 in Sochi beginning November 7.

The message reads, in part:

“Russia deserves the honour of holding this important and prestigious event. Our country has won wide recognition for its chess school and has extensive experience at holding events of this level, all the more so as this championship match is taking place in Sochi, which hosted the Winter Olympics earlier this year.

I am confident that Sochi’s developed sports, transport and tourism infrastructure and the traditional hospitality of its residents will ensure that this event takes place at the highest standard and will enable the competitors – Magnus Carlsen and Viswanathan Anand – to demonstrate the full measure of their skill and ability to find original solutions to the most complex tasks and show that they are worthy rivals in this battle for the chess world’s crown.”
-- Press Release, the Kremlin
