Default Larisa Yudina - Never Forget

Please take a moment from this forums usual backbites
and brickbats and remember that June 7th is the 8th anniversary
of the brutal murder of Larisa Yudina by the henchmen of
FIDE President Kirsan Ilyumzhinov.

promoting chess as the United Nations does for stopping war. But the
[chess olympic] games go on because it's a place where players
fraternize every two years despite their nations' conflicts and
squabbles." Evans On Chess (Chess Life, June 2005, page 12).

Then how come the USCF is endorsing Kirsan Ilyumzhinov? Why did they
send Beatriz Marinello to support a murderer?
