The Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulated the Russian players and coaches on winning the FIDE World Women's Team Championship.

Dear Aleksandra, Alexandra, Kateryna, Polina, and Alina, 

My congratulations on your triumphant performance in Sitges, Spain. 

You convincingly won both the group and the playoff stages, not giving a single chance to the rivals to pass our national team on the way toward the final. You demonstrated this champion's mood in a decisive struggle with the Indian chess players as well! Well done! And, of course, I'm addressing my sincere words of gratitude to your coaches. 

I wish you new successes to come and all the best. 

Vladimir Putin
