Everyone who enjoys chess in Russia last year was Sergey Karjakin’s fan. For those who don’t know yet: Sergey Karjakin is Russian grandmaster and a participant of World Chess Championship 2016.

This Saturaday I met Sergey Karjakin at fest «Gerber» — national holiday for people in Udmurtia (Udmurtia is a federal subject of Russia). Grandmaster gave interviews and took photoes with everyone. I asked Sergey whether his public activity on popularization of chess distracks him from professional chess and he replied that it was no problem for him and he went to the train camp just after the fest.
Head of Udmurtia Alexander Brechalov visited the fest. Prevous head of Udmurtia was and accused in bribery and incarcerated. Sergey Karjakin and Alexaner Brechalov.
