The Ukrainian Chess Federation (UCF) sent a protest letter to FIDE in regard to Kateryna Lagno's decision to play under Russian flag.
Let us remind you, in late April we got to know of Kateryna's wish to change federation. The RCF officially notified UCF about the decision in early April. According to the law Ukrainian federation had three months for issuing the asnwer. As Mark Glukhovsky, Chairmain of the Management Board of Russian Chess Federation, told our website the RCF expected to get from the UCF a bill for the transfer, howevr, the latter decided to send a protest appeal to FIDE only several days before the deadline.
Now the transfer procedure will be reviewed by one of the FIDE commissions. When is this going to happen and when the final decision should be filed is still unknown.
