On the invitation of the President of the Chechen Republic (Russia), Ramzan Kadyrov, FIDE delegation led by the commercial director of FIDE, CEO of Global Chess, Geoffrey Borg and the FIDE President Assistant Berik Balgabaev visited Grozny.

The guests inspected the possible venues for official events, hotels and met with the leadership of the republic. FIDE representatives were very pleased to note the high level of infrastructure recently established in the republic, which meets the highest international standards.

Representatives of the Chechen Republic expressed the desire of chess development and popularization in the republic and to draw attention to the Chechen Republic in connection to the organizing of major international tournaments, even including the participation in a tender for the world championship match and other tournaments of such level.

This is especially important in light of the adopted decision to abolish the regime of counter-terrorist operations in the republic, and soon an international airport will start working in Grozny.
