In an interview to Russian Sobesednik, world's 13th champion Gari
Kasparov said Armenia is the world's greatest chess power.

"Judging from the results of recent Olympiads, it is Armenia. Chess
there has become the same as football in Latin America. Chess in
Armenia is even included as mandatory subject in schools," he said.

"By the way Russia has not managed to celebrate victory since 2002,
with Armenia being a champion thrice, twice beating Ukrainian team,"
Kasparov said.
