Russian coach Tedeev dismissed
Afer being 11 years Russian head coach. (For political reasons that will never be mentioned officially.)
The news came 2 hours ago; no statements yet.
However this was not unexpected. End 2011, he was politically involved in the presidentional campagne in Georgian break away region South Ossetia where he is native of. He supported a presidential candidate from what is called "the opposition" there, not the Kremlin backed candidate. "His" candidate won the elections, over 60%; less than 30% voted for the Kremlin man. Moscow strongly disliked this (like everything happening against its will); the elections were declared "unfair" and annuled. In January, Tedeev was arrested; later released to go to Yarygin tourney.
Yesterday the de facto winner of the election was arrested; today Tedeev got dismissed.
