Alexandra Goryachkina is the 2015 Russian Women Champion. Congratulations! She won the title in a very heated competition in Chita.

In a last round drama, having only 1/2 points advantage after 10 rounds, Goryachkina struggled against Lahno in a long and tense battle. The result did not matter in the end, as her closest competitor Kosteniuk lost her game.
