Karlovich: Dear ladies and gentlemen, I am extremely happy to congratulate the Russian women team as these ladies won gold medals here, in Istanbul. They have proved that they are the strongest in the world. My first question is, whether you really hoped to make it, guys?

Rublevsky: We did. However to make this true we prepared a special opening variation, tried hard and simply played well to get the result.

Press conference with the members of Ukrainian Women team

Round 11 Ukraine thumb

FONTAINE: Dear ladies and gentlemen, I’m glad to invite you to our press-conference with the members of Ukrainian Women team: Kateryna Lahno, Yanovska Inna and Zhukova Nataliya. First of all we congratulate the team with the third place in the Olympiad. What are your impressions after the today match?

LAHNO: Well, of course we are very happy, because at the start before the start of the tournament we were the 4th-rated team. We already know that we came third, but we still have the tiny chance to get the second place (because the round is not over yet), but I wouldn’t even dream of it, because the current result is very decent.

Interview with Yuri Garett and Pavel Tregubov, representatives from ACP

Press conference ACP thumbIf the summary, which we have published before, caused misunderstandings we are very sorry for it as it was not our intention.

Fontaine: We start our press conference with Yuri Garrett, the board director of ACP and the first question is when was ACP founded and how many people are there in the board?

Garrett: ACP was set up in 2003 and the organization is based in Paris, in the heart of Europe and since then there were several General Assemblies, managing the organization from one General Assembly to another. The last board was elected in the end of 2011 and started to work in 2012. It is directed by Emil Sutovsky, a grandmaster from Israel.
