The sponsor of the World Championship match in Moscow Andrey Filatov doesn't have any ambitions to become the Chairman of the Russian Chess Federation's Supervisory Council, if Arkady Dvorkovich left it for any reason. Filatov stated this in an interview to the "Kommersant" newspaper. The businessman added that, in his view, the model, used in the Russian Chess Federation and other federations with a supervisory council, isn't right. "There must be a normal election of a head of an organisation, like in the past. This complex system needs to be simplified in order to make the Federation a clear and democratic institution." 

Filatov thinks that a president of a chess federation must be a real leader, "who should be selected by chess players and other chess representatives. That's it."
