Norway Chess: Press announcement in regards to the ongoing Russia — Ukraine conflict.


In regard to the horrific situation that is taking place in Ukraine by the Russian government, Norway Chess has decided to support the sanctions the world community has made against Russia. This means that we can not have participation from Russia in Norway Chess for the 10th edition of Norway Chess that will take place from May 30 to June 10, 2022. Millions of Russians do not want war and we know this situation has major consequences also for the Russian people. We stand with the people in Ukraine.

The player field will be announced later this month.
