Ukraine will promote a chess sport, youth and sports minister Ravil Safiullin said today during a celebration of the Chess Day in Ukraine, ForUm correspondent reports.

"A program of chess development in Ukraine for 2013-2020 has been created. Now it passes the final stage of preparation, and then it will be adopted at the government level. Of course, it will include the development of sport in general and involvement of masses in studying chess," the minister said.

Safiullin also noted that in some countries, where the school curriculum includes a chess lesson, student achievements increase by 15-20%, but it would be difficult to introduce such an initiative in Ukraine.
