The press conference dedicated to the opening of the Alekhine Memorial was held in Paris. Ilya Levitov, the Chairman of the Management Board of the Russian Chess Federation, was among the speakers, "We have an idea of holding the tournaments in honor of the Soviet and Russian world champions within a year. We just need a stable funding," he said.

In regard to the Memorial Levitov said that the Russian Chess Federation is more playing a role of a "service company" than of the organizer, "This is an ideal situation for us when there are people who are ready to finance the things for which the Russian Chess Federation exists."
