    For those who can read Russian - this is just getting more and more ridiculous

    So they passed a motion of moral support (not necessarily endorsement) for both Ilyumzhinov and Karpov when Karpov is not known to be running?

    Yes, and more importantly Karpov is highly unlikely to be running.

    I think the main message of the article was that the new-old president of the Russian chess federation was looking for excuses not to support Illumzinov.

    Hi all,

    http://www.fide.com/component/conten...k-account.html

    That is the link on the current situation regarding FIDE bank accounts. This is due to the sanctions on Kirsan from USA. Clearly this has put FIDE in a bad position because of the sanctions on Kirsan.

    Makro is trying to finish-off Kirsan. Anyway, the sad part is that we are witnessing two very corrupt individuals (Kirsan and Makro) fighting for control over the chess world.

    Michael,

    I think you are being too harsh in saying the following that Makro is trying to finish of Kirsan and that both Kirsan and Makro are very corrupt individuals. I can think I much more corrupted people in this world but don't want to lead this thread off the track.

    This is vey sad - the linked letter says FIDE's accounts would be closed forthwith so this may have already occurred. How they can arrange alternate banking with Kirsan on the "nautghty persons list" I do not know. I await developments with some trepidation.

    I don't take that as meaning that the money has been taken from those accounts. It just means they have to put it somewhere else.
