Dear Chess Friend,

The Ukrainian chess community is helping Ukraine in the war against Russia. Chess genius Vasyl Ivanchuk is giving online simuls to raise funds. European champion and Olympic gold medal winner Natalia Zhukova is working as a politician in Odessa. And FIDE World Champion Ruslan Ponomariov coordinated this wonderful collection of chess games from Ukrainian players, published by New In Chess. All games were nominated and annotated by Ukrainian players.

The book also covers the three legendary Olympic victories by Ukraine, in 2004 and 2010 for the men’s team and 2006 for the women’s team. Oleg Romanishin remembers his training match against Mikhail Tal. And Jan Timman has a look at his favourite Ukrainian study composers.

With contributions by Vasyl Ivanchuk, Ruslan Ponomariov, Anna and Mariya Muzychuk, Natalia Zhukova, Anton Korobov, Vladimir Tukmakov, Pavel Eljanov, Andrei Volokitin, and many, many others.

Support Ukraine - and buy this wonderful collection of games and stories. The eBook is priced at €15 and the print book will be €20 plus shipping costs.

All proceeds of the book will go to charities in Ukraine, selected by Ponomariov and Zhukova. 

Best wishes,
