The Duma Speaker Boris Gryzlov thinks that chess is most likely to be introduced into the Russian schools curriculum.
`In Kalmykia, schools have chess in their programmes for more than 10 years and the results in other school subjects have improved. Kalmyk pupils win not only Russian championships but also world ones in other sports,` Mr. Gryzlov said at the opening ceremony of the Russian Sport Forum. In Mr. Gryzlov`s opinion chess develops not only pupils` logical thinking but their striving for victory which is very important for the Russian people.
