The website of the STRC "Kalmykia" published a TV report  dedicated to the meeting of the FIDE Presidential Board which took place in Elista. The report contains interviews with some of the participants of the meeting. 

The President of ACP Emil Sutovsky assessed the chances of his compatriot Boris Gelfand in the upcoming World Championship match: "The match has an interesting hidden motive: will Gelfand, who surely isn't the favourite of the match, manage to equal the fight? If there will be an equal fight, Gelfand is going to have a good chance. The faсе is that his nervous system is stronger than Anand's. So, if there will be an equal fight till the end of the match, Gelfand can surprise and breakthrough to the World Champion title."

The former World Champion Nona Gaprinashvili highly appreciates Kirsan Ilyumzhinov's work as the President of FIDE: "I even said yesterday - it's a pity he wasn't the President when I became the Champion." 

The report doesn't say much about the decisions of the Board, however, "there's an information that Garry Kasparov will head the International Chess Academy."
