|Anatoly Nikitin (President of Russian Draughts Federation and head of FMJD 64-section)|
There is no doubt that Russia is currently a leading force in the game of draughts.
In the meeting, the MSSA and the Russian Draughts Federation examined the following:
- Development in terms of grass-root support,
- Development in schools,
- Introduction of 'Russian Draughts' rules
- Closer sharing of good-practice, and
- General discussion of where the two bodies could work closer for the benefit of draughts.
