6/2/2008 – Last week Alexei Shirov published a press release asking FIDE to resolve the crisis surrounding the special Challengers' Match between Gata Kamsky and Veselin Topalov. Kamsky's representative replied, and then FIDE came up with a decision on the venue in Lvov, Ukraine.

Alexei Shirov's press release

I do not quite understand why Mrs. Kamskaya used such words as "Shirov's disturbing rumours" in her answer. I think I was just operating with public facts such as Mrs. Kamskaya's communication with FIDE earlier this year. And, of course, Mrs. Kamskaya knows that both Rustam and Gata Kamsky talked to me about the matter in April during the Russian league, so once again, no rumours involved.

Of course, it is very important for the players and the Chess World in general that FIDE has finally resolved the situation. This is exactly what I wanted with my press release five days ago.

Alexei Shirov,
Tarragona, 1.06.2008
