Boris Spassky was indeed taken from Paris to Moscow without his wife being informed
Boris Spassky has been in one of Moscow clinics since Monday, said deputy chairman of Russian Chess Federation Veteran comitee Rimma Bilunova who paid attention to what has happened to Spassky after his brain attack in September 2010. She said that Spassky's sister is wrong saying that Boris has been stolen from his house in Paris against his will.
"Spassky has problems in his family life, says Bilunova, and his sister supports his wife Marina. It was a mistake to send Boris to France after the brain attack. All these two years he wanted to come to Russia but his wife didn't let him do that under the pretext of his poor health. However after his mediacl insurance expired she took him home from the Clinic where he was really looked after. Marina decided not to make the new insurance".
Bilunova says that Spassky's "Friends" had done a great job before Boris was able to get to Russia. "Professional French lawyers were invited to take part in the work".
"Boris Spassky has always enjoyed to communicate with chess veterans and tried to take part in our events, Bilunova says, we supported him during his ilness, telephoned him, but after his jubilee it became impossible to talk to him. We hope he'll recover soon and we'll be glad to see him on our events again. It is clear that he travelled to Russia because he wanted to do so. There are people who can prove it".
Chess-News is going to talk to some of those people quite soon.
