His family and friends met him at the railway station. Tomashevsky wasn't disappointed by the absence of officials:
"It's no secret that I don't get any support from the authorities", he told 4vsar.ru. "I hope it changes, and I'd like my merits to be recognized in some material way. However, I'm not going to dramatize it - my level is already such that I'm able to cope with my financial problems myself. What's more important is that the local authorities could invest more in the development of chess".
