Ukrainian chess player, the current world champion in blitz and rapid chess Anna Muzychuk said his boycott of the forthcoming world championship due to limitations of women’s rights. She wrote about this on his page in Facebook.

“In a few days I will lose both his championship titles – one after the other. Just because I decided not to go to Saudi Arabia. Don’t play by anyone’s rules, not to wear the Abaya, do not go with the escort to the street and do not feel the secondary creature.

A year ago I won both of these titles and was the happiest person in the chess world, but now I feel really bad. I am ready to fight for your principles and miss the tournament, which could bring more money than a dozen tournaments together.

It’s all annoying, but most of all – that no one in this case. It’s a really bitter feeling, but I’m still not going to change my opinion. The same applies to my sister Marie – I’m so glad that she shared my point of view.

So, for the few who still care about it – we’ll be back!” – wrote Muzychuk.

The world Cup of rapid chess will be held in Riyadh from 26 to 30 December.
