Former world chess champion Gary Kasparov has been given Croatian citizenship. The Russian chess Grandmaster known for politically opposing Russian president Vladimir Putin, has even met Croatian Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic this week. Gary Kasparov has in the past often spent his holidays in southern Croatian town of Makarska. Gary Kasparov is likely to run as a candidate for the President of World Chess Federation (FIDE) and has indicated in the past that he would represent Croatia if he ran for the position.March 6, 2014 at 10:45 am #429601
Is he not welcomed in Russia or does he just like Croatia so much he wants to live there?
