Filatov re-elected as RCF President by wide margin

Russian Chess Federation encouraged also Anatoly Karpov to run for FIDE President

Andrey Filatov was re-elected President of the Russian Chess Federation with 56 votes, Ivan Starikov got 14 votes and Zaurbek Malsagov 1 vote. As it was anticipated, Kirsan Ilyumzhinov pulled out before the voting took place. Sergey Nesterov and Eduard Suboch also withdrew their candidatures.

It came as a surprise that the General Assembly of the Russian Chess Federation encouraged also Anatoly Karpov to run for FIDE President by providing moral support both for him and Kirsan Ilyumzhinov.
