Statement of the Georgian Chess Federation

During the 89th FIDE Congress, when the Fide President was elected, the official delegation from Khanty- Mansiysk gave out souvenir bags with folded maps, where Georgia was depicted without Its territories - Abkhazia and Tskhinvali.  The Volunteers of the Olympiad who discovered the maps, informed the Organizing Committee. The latter immediately took appropriate measures for taking the abovementioned maps out of the souvenir bags.
