Letter to Mr. Dmitry Peskov (pdf)

Dear Mr. Peskov!

On behalf of the Russian Chess Federation I would like to congratulate you on your anniversary! Through your kind involvement chess is regaining its popularity in Russia and has extended coverage in mass media. Russian politicians pay more attention to chess and chess players and gladly visit high-level chess tournaments, like the all-Russian team competition for schools Belaya Ladya and World Championships among men and women.

Also I would like to express my deepest gratitude to you for visiting the World Chess Championship Match between Sergey Karjakin and Magnus Calrsen in New York. Your support was very important for the Russian candidate for the title.

We highly appreciate your participation in such significant events of the Central House of Chess Player as the opening ceremony of the RCF Chess Museum and celebration of the House's 60th anniversary. The RCF Board of Trustees has really shown their thoughts for the Russian chess and chess players!

Today I would like to wish you robust health, energy, optimism, success, happiness, and well-being!

Andrey Filatov
President of the Russian Chess Federation
