Dear colleagues!

The FMJD for the sake of personal ambitions of some Board members held electronic voting for separation of the Section-64 into two new – Russian and Brazilian. The most of countries, voted for the separation, don’t develop draughts-64.

Many times we had offered to the FMJD leaders peace and cooperation on adequate conditions. But the FMJD Board always chose war.

Due to the fact that the division of the Section-64 (Russian/Brazilian) into Russian and Brazilian section conducted contrary to the FMJD Statutes, this decision is illegal and we will challenge it in court.

Russian Draughts Federation has already paid and filed a complaint to the FMJD Ethics Committee (committee president is the president of the Ukraine Draughts Federation Anatoliy Yatsenko) on the illegitimacy of the last General Assembly and electronic voting, on insults against national federations and individual persons from the FMJD Board members, on non-financing by the FMJD of Russian player participation and deprivation for them an opportunity to get prize money in SportAccord Mind Games in draughts-64.

The Section-64, for its part, paid and filed a complaint to the Ethics Committee on illegality of the separation of Section-64 (Russian/Brazilian) into Russian and Brazilian sections as contradicting to the FMJD Statutes and to deprivation of draughts-64 to participate SportAccord Mind Games.

According to the procedures of the FMJD Statutes if we will be dissatisfied with decision of the Ethics Committee, we intend to apply to the Sport Arbitration Court in Lausanne.

International Draughts Federation – the FMJD Section-64 will continue its work on the development of different kinds of draughts on 64-squared board, including Brazilian version. Scheduled calendar-2014 of the Section-64 will be executed.

Privileges and preferences will receive only players belonging to member countries of the International Draughts Federation.

Until the end of proceedings in the Court, any activity of “Brazilian section” is illegal, and any competition under its auspices are illegitimate.
