The Ukrainian team of Anna Ushenina, Kateryna Lagno, Mariya Muzychuk, Inna Gaponenko and Natalia Zhukova won gold at the 2013 Women's World Team Championships in Kazakhstan after drawing their final match with Russia.

It was a fine victory for Ukraine who were undefeated in all their nine matches during the tournament, winning seven and drawing two. Their final round match with Russia was something of an anti-climax, with all games being fairly bloodless draws.

China narrowly defeated India 2½-1½ thanks to a win on top board by Ju Wenjun, and the Chinese team finished in silver medal position. Russia took the bronze.

    It seems that we have an interesting meeting between theory and reality. Wink

    The theory (in this case, in the history books and how the West tends to see things that aren't really Western issues) represented in ChocolateTeapot's messages, while on the other hand there's on-the-ground reality (in this case, as it feels day-to-day in Ukraine and what the current attitudes of people and ethnic groups are towards each other) represented in V_Fox's messages.

    Usually, when these two types of evidence -- theory and reality -- clash only one turns out to be right (and it's usually the same one), plus there's rarely an agreement to be reached because the points are so divergent and stable.  

    I think most of us know this from our experience living in the various parts of this world.  The details differ, but the main issue is the same.

    Welcome, Mr. ChocolateTeapot

    1. Of course I've heard about Crimea - I was born and am often there.
    And you have been at least once in the Crimea? or your information only from British newspaper? ;)

    2. I think I know the history well. What does Peter the Great to the Ukraine?

    3. Unfortunately, I have no information about immigrants-Uniates - so I can not say anything about it.

    4. And last: "Russian occupation" - is the Ukrainian-Nazi terminology. Do you support the Nazis in my country?

    Ever heard of Crimea, Mr Fox? Well that is in Ukraine, and that is just for starters. How about Peter the Great? Surely you have heard of him. Ukraine was part of the Russian Empire long before it was superceded by the USSR. 

    You are right about the Uniate church though. Many Ukrainian catholics were forced to emigrate. In fact Russian occupation was tolerated partly because it protected the orthodox church, and suppressed the catholic one.

    sorry, but:

    1. "To suggest that Ukraine and Russia might have any affection for each other demonstates profound ignorance. Historically Ukraine bore the brunt of Russian expansionism..."

    - You probably know better, but I think this statement is totally incorrect.

    2. "The two countries even have different religions, as most Ukrainians are Uniate catholics"

    - Uniate Catholic religion prevalent only in some western regions of the country.

    • Christians - 89.6%
      • Eastern Orthodox - 72.0%
      • Catholics - 15.8%
      • Protestants - 2.4%
    • Islam - 0.6%
    • Jewish - 0.2%
    • others - 9%

    To suggest that Ukraine and Russia might have any affection for each other demonstates profound ignorance. Historically Ukraine bore the brunt of Russian expansionism, and today it discriminates against its ethnic Russians. That is why Karjakin chooses to play for Russia, even though he was born in the Ukraine. The two countries even have different religions, as most Ukrainians are Uniate catholics.

    It certainly seemed like the Russian team was not too eager to try to win over Ukraine in the final round -- thus potentially handing the gold medals to China.  (The Slavic blood connection helped there, it seems to me.)

    Congratulations to the new Ukrainian women champions!  Their men had done it a few times recently with Olympic and other team medals, so it is good for their women to achieve high honors too.

    Ukraine rules women's chess lately. Congrats to all girls and especially Anna who has every possible big women's (time for men's?) title now! Thanks God she won't have nightmares over that stupid loss to Krush

    Well done Ukraine. I wonder if there will be any fallout with Russia only taking 3rd while missing their top two players.

    Some great photos on the official site by the way. Very professional.
