“should not be sanctioned”

Chairman of the Committee on Physical Culture and Sports of the State Duma Dmitry Svishchev explained why the chess player Anatoly Karpov should not be included in the sanctions lists.

The representative of the State Duma is outraged by such an attitude towards the famous chess player, who was denied a visa to participate in the screening of the film “World Champion” at the UN headquarters in Geneva.

Earlier, world chess champion Anatoly Karpov said whether the chess player is able to cheat a computer programtrained to play chess.

“Anatoly Karpov is the greatest chess player of our time, a multiple world champion, about whom books are written and films are made, such a legendary person should not be on the sanctions lists,” NEWS.ru quotes Dmitry Svishchev.

Svishchev believes that the Europeans are not satisfied with the fact that Karpov is a member of the State Duma RF.

“Some Swiss people who admire him put Karpov on the list of Russian sanctions. It’s strange, surprising and insulting for them. Such a person should not fall under sanctions,” a member of the State Duma expressed his opinion.
