Stop press news:Boris Spassky.

leave a comment »

Chess News.ru has published a statement by the Deputy Chairman of the Russian Chess Federation Ms. Rimma Bilunova explaining that Boris was in Moscow by his own will and after being helped by some “friends” so as to flee from his family in Paris. Ms.Bilunova blames Spassky’s wife of not renewing Boris’ medical insurance policy after being sent back home from the Paris hospital and also accuses Boris’ sister of  being in favour of Spassky’s wife in the affair.

Since everybody knows this affair it seems as if the Chess world has other things to do, because the Spassky case has fallen into oblivion. Not for me.

Boris Spassky was one of the best chessplayers of the world during the 60’s of the 20th century. He played two times for the World Championship after a series of six gruelling matches against the best players in the world, and finally he defeated Petrosian in 1969. Moreover, he is my friend.

Unfortunately we are in an iconoclastic world where people despise the past and are only interested in the immediate. We want everything and want it immediately. We do not care about the past and are ruled by greed, immodesty, selfishness and vanity.

I hope one day we will know the real story of Boris Spassky, and hope that those with whom he is now, take care of him. A public appearance will be welcome.
