Based on the brief excerpt given in the link, the translation is
rather inept. I got a kick out the sentence: "He several times crossed
the square of the Russian White House fired by sharpshooters."

This new and brief biography of Kirsan has not been independently reviewed -
so here is a note from the site:



"This is a passage from the thrilling nonfiction book written by Yuri
Vasilyev. The author and the main character, Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, know each
other for almost 12 years. During the presentation of his book in Turin Yuri
Vasilyev said that he knows many chess genius but only one person deserves
to be called the best chess organizer, and that is Kirsan Ilyumzhinov.
Vasilyev added that he intentionally made the book short since it meant to
be published for the Chess Olympiad 2006 and during the Games people have
little spare time to read."



------------



To paraphrase slightly, but with considerable irony, Ted Hughes wrote:



There you may see it,

Our lonely Tartar death,

Surrounded and dumb like the bound

Wolf on Tolstoy's horse.

It is like living in a communist dictatorship. You need Kirsan's
permsission to play in the world chess championship, or you have to
have about 20,000 dollars to sue him with. I will win, it just such an
unfair world.

highly doubtful you will win in court. sue fide for what?
your country is not even recognized by fide. what are
you trying to win? who are the candidates from your
country that have even a FM ranking?
