The President said, in particular, in his message:
“You have achieved success in the difficult selection round battles and proven your leadership in the regional stage of the competition. Today, the top school teams from around the country have gathered in Sochi.
It is good to see that this tournament continues to develop and attracts more participants every year. I see this as a clear sign that our national chess school’s legendary traditions continue.
I am sure that the Belaya Ladya tournament will continue to make a big contribution to supporting young talent, giving youth the chance to develop their skills, and spreading the popularity of chess among young people.”
