FIDE awards grants to Ukrainian seniors and disabled players

A dedicated FIDE panel under the chairmanship of FIDE Director-General Emil Sutovsky awarded grants for an amount of €2,000 each to 5 prominent Ukrainian veteran trainers. 

The panel would like to thank the leading Ukrainian players for their recommendations, and for their concern about chess veterans. 

FIDE has also contributed €1,500 to allow the IM Ukrainian Igor Yarmonov to take part in the 21st IPCA World Individual Chess Championship 2022 that is currently being held in Ashdod, Israel.
