(ANSA) – CHENNAI, 07 AUG – The former Russian Deputy Prime Minister, Arkady Dvorkovich, was re-elected today president of the International Chess Federation (Fide), beating a Ukrainian rival according to whom the position of the Russian was unsustainable due to invasion of his country by Moscow.

A total of 157 out of 179 national chess federations in India voted in favor of Dvorkovich, said the head of the electoral commission of the Fide, Roberto Rivello.

Dvorkovich’s re-election is “excellent news,” commented the Kremlin. Dvorkovich prevailed over the Ukrainian grandmaster, Andrii Baryshpolets, who received only 16 votes.

Five delegates abstained and one vote was declared null. (HANDLE).
