FIDE Elections: Russia Reported to Support Ilyumzhinov

ChessVibes reports that Russia will support incumbent Ilyumzhinov for President of the FIDE in the upcoming election.  Russian support is of great importance in any given year, but particularly so when both of the candidates are Russian.  The other candidate is of course former World Champion Karpov, whom the USCF has endorsed.
