President of Russia is going to attend the closing ceremony of the World Championship match

According to our sources, the probability of Vladimir Putin's presence at the closing ceremony in Sochi is extremely high. The ceremony will commence tomorrow (November 25th) at 15:00 GMT time, in the same Pushkin hall used by Carlsen and Anand for the play.

Let us remind you that the opening ceremony had also been expected to be visited by President of Russia; that time, things turned out differently. Then there were the rumours that Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev could come, which have proved false too. However, now it's almost certain that Vladimir Putin will close the match.

Today, the World Champion spent a few hours playing basketball with the journalists, who asked him several questions after the basketball match. One of the questions was about the probable visit by President of Russia:

Earlier this year, Prime Minister of Norway Erna Solberg had declined similar invitation to Sochi. 'I regret that the current international circumstances do not allow me to attend a sports event in the Russian Federation', she said in September.
