This was announced by Kirsan Ilyumzhinov

The portal quotes Kirsan Ilyumzhinov who announced that the World Champion match between Carlsen and Anand will be held in Sochi, Russia. The opeing ceremony is scheduled for November 7. Interfax reports the prize fund of the match will be US $3 million.

Let us remind you, FIDE didn't receive a single bid for holding the match. The FIDE presidential candidate Garry Kasparov said that is shameful. The rumour said the reigning FIDE president would eventually arrange the match to be held in Russia, as long as the current political elite does its best Ilyumzhinov to win the elections in August in Tromso.

UPD. Norwegian chess federation president Joran Aulin-Jansson is not sure the match to take place in Russia.
