Sergey Karjakin with “extensive” commentary on Nielsen joining Baryshpolets team

The Ukrainian Grandmaster Andrii Baryshpolets is running for president of FIDE in the upcoming presidential elections during the Chess Olympiad 2022. Baryshpolets announced his intention to challenge Dvorkovich, pointing corruption practices, systematic reputational issues, misrepresentation of federations, and failures to observe democratic, liberal and corporate governance principles. The Danish Grandmaster Peter Heine Nielsen joined Baryshpolets team as deputy, bringing the promise of transparency in FIDE. Sergey Karjakin posted for the first time in 20 days on Twitter, commenting on the news. While his commentary contains only three letters, many in the chess world will interpret this as a direct support for Dvorkovich and the current FIDE administration, the same team that banned him for six months from playing.
