FMJD valdes online sēde 31.03.2021

31.martā notika FMJD valdes online mītiņš.

Īsumā galvenie lēmumi:

1. Sieviešu titula mačs notiks no 23.aprīļā līdz 3.maijam. Cerams, ka epidemioloģiskā situācija nepasliktināsies. Par vīriešu maču 2021.gada rudenī FMJD komisija vēl nav sagatavojusi atbildi Latvijas Dambretes federācijai. Tas ir saistīts ar LDF protestu FMJD, ka neizvēlējās Gunti Valneri, bet izvēlējās maču pārcelt uz rudeni.

2.Pasaules čmepionāts notiks Tallinā no 28.jūnija līdz  15. jūlijam. Galvenais sponsors – Tallinas pilsēta. Dambretes federācijām lūgums iesniegt kandidātu sarakstu spēlēm pasaules čempionātā atbilstoši kvotām. Pēc 10.maija vairs sarakstus mainīt nevarēs, bet spēlētāji atteikušos spēlētāju vietā tiks izvēlēti atbilstoši FMJD reitingam.

3.Nākošā FMJD Ģenerālā asambleja notiks 3.jūlijā Tallinā pasaules čempionāta laikā. Federācija, kas nepiedalīsies asamblejā, var nodot savu balsošanas mandātu citai federācijai.

4.Tā kā FMJD ir vispasaules antidopinga aģentūras WADA biedrs, tad tai ir saistoši WADA lēmumi, arī par Krievijas sportistu liegšanu parstāvēt savu valsti lielākajās sacensībās, bet startēšanu zem neitrālas valsts karoga (RUSADA). FMJD nosūta vēstuli WADA ar lūgumu mīkstināt šīs sankcijas attiecībā pret dambreti.

5.FMJD online sekcija izstrādā noteikumus un reitingu sistēmu online turnīriem, slēdz sadarbību ar lidraughts platformu, kuras īpašnieks ir Stefans Šermans, lai pielāgotu šo platformu FMJD turnīriem, kā arī veido antiprogrammu izmantošanas sistēmu, kuras vadītājs ir Ivans Antoņenko no Ukrainas. FMJD online sekcijas mājaslapa http://online.shashki.com/ tiks tulkota 4 valodās.

6.Pasaules čempionāts 100 lauciņos rapidā un ātrspēlē visticamāk notiks Turcijā 2021.gada septembrī.

General Secretary Yuriy Chertok, Treasurer Aare Harak, Tournament Director

representative on WADA issues Dr. Renato Capurro, Players Committee

During the meeting, the following questions were discussed:
1) The World Title Matches
Women’s Match in Warsaw (April 23rd – May 3rd, 2021)
Preparations of the Polish Draughts federation for the match are being carried out in
close collaboration with the Tournament Director Youth and the General Secretary
and by now almost everything is ready. Due to the nationwide increase in Covid-19
cases, the tighter restrictions have been imposed in Poland that will remain in place
till at least mid April. Hopefully, the epidemiological situation in Poland will
improve and the match will be organized within the due dates. Otherwise, it will be
necessary to postpone the event.
Men’s Match (autumn 2021) – at the time of the meeting, the commission created
at the request of the Latvian Draughts Federation had not yet completed its work.
The commission’s opinion will be published separately.
2) The World Championships in Tallinn (June 28th -July 15th)
The main sponsor of the event is the city government of Tallinn. The event will be
organized in compliance with COVID-19 preventive measures, agreed with the
Estonian Olympic Committee. An invitation giving short overview of the safety
requirements will be sent out to players (these requirements might change: PCR
tests-one in home country, one upon arrival; first 24 hours stay in hotel; health and
travel insurance, no spectators allowed etc.) with links to state authorities. In case
some countries inoculate sportsmen travelling abroad, special letters confirming their
participation in the Championship might be provided. Restrictions in Estonia remain
in force until the 25th of April. Then the final decision on conducting the World
Championships will be communicated to the federations.
Qualification for the World Championship. Because of the pandemic and the
impossibility for some confederations to conduct selection for the World
Championship 2021, the Council requests the confederations to form the lists of
their proposed players for the World Championships in accordance with the quotas

specified in FMJD Annexes in order to give the players an opportunity to participate
in the event. The proposed player lists are to be sent to the FMJD office by
1
st of May. The list of participants may be changed until May 10th, 2021. After that
date, if a player is not able to participate in the championship, his place will be
reassigned according to the FMJD Global List.
3) The next General Assembly (July 3rd, 2021)
The next FMJD General Assembly will take place in Tallinn, Estonia on July 3rd,
2021, during the World Championship. The FMJD General Assembly
announcement was sent to the federations and published at the FMJD website. It
contains the concept agenda and some additional information concerning the
elections. Proposals for adding points to the agenda may be made until May 21,
2021.
Voting rights: Candidates for functions in the Council may be proposed no later
than 1 month prior to the General Assembly by federations that have satisfied all
their financial obligations toward FMJD. A federation that cannot participate in the
Assembly may give mandate to another member federation of the FMJD.
According to article 21, paragraph 21.2 of FMJD Statutes, «a delegate may
represent 1 (one) more Member that has given his voting rights in an official letter
to the delegate. The original letter needs to be presented to the council before the
meeting starts».
4) FMJD and WADA relationships
Regarding the implementation of the Arbitral Award CAS 2020/O/6689 World
Anti-Doping Agency v. Russian Anti-Doping Agency the FMJD is ready to follow
the WADA instructions and prescriptions; nevertheless, the FMJD Council does
not find this decision appropriate. The Russian players have nothing to do with
doping and with RUSADA. Moreover, doping issues cannot be treated the same
way when it comes to mind sport federations as it is done in the context of big
physical sport federations. Therefore, the Council decided to address WADA
higher-level authorities and ask to ease the sanctions and to make doping control
stipulations more reasonable for the draughts sport.
Dr. Renato Capurro works closely with Laetitia Zumbrunnen, WADA’s Senior
Manager, in order to settle the questions connected with WADA.
5) Online Section FMJD
A. Kandaurov reported on the work performed during the last 3 months:
– Online Draughts Regulations has been drawn up and sent to the Technical
Committee. The Regulations shall apply to all variants of draughts and different

modes of play. It is proposed to create a working commission to continue work on
the Regulations.
– Contacts with Lidraugths were established in December 2020. Stefan
Schermann, the owner of Lidraugths is looking forward to closer cooperation with
FMJD Online Section. A plan of modernizing the platform has been developed,
which could help FMJD ensure conduct of online tournaments in all draughts
variants while applying the FMJD rules, and user-friendly, automatized system for
organization of these events. The sum of 7,400 euros is needed to implement the
project. A. Kandaurov will negotiate on this issue with the potential sponsor and
inform the Council of the conditions and possibilities, after which the final
decision will be taken.
– The anti-cheating measures. The anti-cheating system will be integrated into
Lidraugths platform. It is also proposed to create the Fair Play Committee that
would be led by Ivan Antonenko, Ukraine. This committee might have top
grandmasters as its members and cooperate with the Ethical Committee.
– Online Section plans to organize Online World Cup 2021 in Brazilian
Draughts in 2021. The invitation letters have been sent to different national
federations and the regulations are published on the FMJD website. Official
national federations are welcome to participate in the tournament.
– Other plans of FMJD Online Section:
– Organize training of arbiters to work with Draughts Arbiter program as
mainstream of FMJD standard for online tournaments.
– Calculate special online rating for official tournaments blitz & rapid (to be
discussed with the Technical committee).
– Involve some volunteers to work on 100 game support.
– Finish online language support (4 languages) – http://online.shashki.com/
– Launch online tournament’s livestreams on YouTube. Lidraughts platform has
built-in features for this.
6) World Championships in blitz and rapid – 100
The members of the Council admit the necessity to conduct the World
Championships in Blitz and Rapid. Turkey has been considered as a possible venue
for the competitions, but as it is still difficult for many players to travel because of
the restrictions, therefore the Championships in blitz and rapid will most likely be
conducted in September 2021.
