Appeal to FIDE: move the Women's World Championship
August 15, 2008

"We express our worry about the current dangerous situation near Cabardino-Balkaria," writes a group of participants in the Women's World Championship scheduled to take placed from August 28th to September 18th 2008 in Nalchik, a city in the Caucasus region of southern Russia. The proximity to the Russian-Georgian armed conflict region is the reason.

Open letter by the participants of the Women World Championship of FIDE

We, the participants of the Women World Championship 2008, express our worry about the current dangerous situation near Cabardino-Balkaria. We think when there is such a tense situation, it is not expedient to hold such a high level tournament in that area. That's why we kindly ask you to move this tournament to the safer place, which would be convenient for all the participants.

If you agree wth the abov, please join us with signing this letter, and please send it to FIDE and to us (Maia Chiburdanidze, Lela Javakhishvili, Sopio Gvetadze, Nino Khurtsidze, Maia Lomineishvili, Sopiko Khukhashvili)
