Not long before the end of the game 9 of the World Championship Match in Moscow, the grandmaster Alexander Motylev shared his impressions about the match and explained nuances of the opening struggle in an interview to our correspondent Elena Klimets. It's interesting that Anand's move 25...Ng6, approved by the commentators in general, caused Alexander some doubts. 

Listen to the conversation in the audio player (in Russian).

Note that the plan with moving the queen to g5, mentioned by Motylev as almost the only idea to play for a win after the pawn structure got fixed on the kingside, doesn't seem to work. Gelfand wasn't able to win in the endgame.
