Statement by the Committee on the Ukraine Crisis
After the bulk of the March issue had been prepared for publication, U.K. problemists watched the Russian
invasion of Ukraine with the same shock, horror and revulsion as countless others in the chess problem
community. In consequence, the British Chess Problem Society, and the editorial team of The Problemist,
will henceforth not publish problems or other contributions submitted by Russians. This policy will continue
for the foreseeable future. These actions do not imply any criticism of individual Russian problemists.
