Mark Glukhovsky, Chairmain of the Management Board of Russian Chess Federation confirmed to our website that Ukrainian chess player Kateryna Lagno stated her wish to play for Russia long time ago, already during the rule of the previous leadership of the federation.

"We are pleased to welcome a strong player into our team," Glukhovsky told us. "Crucial is that this is not a replacement for Kosintseva sisters but a beneficial completion."

According to Glukhovsky Russian Chess Federation sent FIDE supporting documents and paid 5000 euros, while Ukrainian federation is not responding to RCF's requests: "No one can really forbid the player to change the federation if such is her will," Glukhovsky noted.
