In the yesterday's interview given to our website Vladimir Kramnik stated he may not be participating in the super tournament which will take place in Stabanger: 

"The Russian Chess Federation wants to see me playing in Tal Memorial [in June - CN], apart from that there also be something else taking place in May for which I should be in Russia. I know that now Norway and the RCF are negotiating to let me skip that tournament. It should be mentioned that RCF has seriously helped me with the preparation for the Candidates. It paid for everything and the preparation wasn't cheap at all. So, I partly feel to be obliged to the federation. I heard that they found some consensus, but I don't know the details. So, if the organizers of the tournament will let me to skip the tournament - I will do so."

Kramnik will participate in Alekhine Memorial which start in Paris in 10 days.
