MOSCOW, 6 JUNE: Former world chess champion and anti-Kremlin activist Garry Kasparov said he is currently staying out of Russia over fears he could be investigated as part of the authorities’ crackdown on the Opposition.
“I kept travelling back and forth until late February when it became clear that I might be part of this ongoing investigation of the activities of the political protestors,” Kasparov said in Geneva yesterday, according to an audio recording posted
on his website. “Right now, I have serious doubts that if I return to Moscow I may not be able to travel back,” Kasparov said. afp
