Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-19-12  wordfunph: he also served as head coach of Ukrainian youth team, rest in peace IMC Sakharov..
Sep-18-13  Nosnibor: There is something wrong with the bio details.In the USSR Championship of 1967 he only finished 10th and not 6th ,but this may have been confused with 1965 when he finished with his best result placing 7th.
