Anish Giri is politically correct on Karjakin’s case, criticizes Candidates replacement procedure

In an interview with Dina Belenkaya, Anish Giri was politically correct on the case of Karjakin. “This is unprecedented situation […] Always in such decisions you have sides that say it is not harsh enough and sides that say it is too harsh. You have the full spectrum.” However, Giri was critical of FIDE’s regulations to substitute Karjakin based on ratings in the upcoming Candidates Chess 2022, “Suddenly rating spot is back. I do not see any logic why that is happening. For 1,5 years I do not pay attention to the rating spot because it was gone. Now instead of giving an extra spot to a Grand Prix player, rating is back. […] It is just odd to me “
