The winner of the World Chess Cup, Russian Alexandra Goryachkina, said she did not condemn those who decided to change their citizenship.
“Did they offer me? No. What if such an offer were made? I try not to talk about what didn’t happen.
Everyone in this situation is looking for what will be better for themselves, chess players have a short career, and I do not condemn this choice, ”RIA Novosti quoted Goryachkina as saying.
On August 21, Goryachkina outplayed Salimova in a tie-break and won the World Cup.
Earlier it was reported that the Russian grandmaster Vitiugov changed sports citizenship to English.
