King of Kalmykia

King of Kalmykia

The Guardian, Thursday 21 September 2006

King of Kalmykia Life is not all plain sailing for Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, the flamboyant leader of the Russian republic of Kalmykia. For a start, his Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit II needs constant repairs thanks to the rutted roads of his impoverished fiefdom. And then there is the danger of alien abduction. He has already been pressganged into one trip on a UFO – in 1997 when he was on a business trip to Moscow. “They took me from my apartment and we went aboard their ship,” he says, sitting in his office in Kalmykia’s capital, Elista. “We flew to some kind of star. They put a spacesuit on me, told me many things and showed me around. They wanted to demonstrate that UFOs do exist.”

And yet Ilyumzhinov could not be happier. On Saturday he will satisfy two of his great passions – self-promotion and chess – when his republic hosts a tournament to decide the best chess player on earth. The contest between “classical chess” champion Vladimir Kramnik and World Chess Federation (Fide) No 1 Veselin Topalov will produce an undisputed world champion and end a 13-year schism in the sport.
