Interview with Harika Dronavalli
HarikaDronavaliDear Harika, as I know, it’s not your first visit to Armenia. Moreover, our people perceive you as a close person. How much did you manage to know our people and traditions? Do you find something common between Armenia and India?

Yes, I have been in Armenia for three times previously. I have been playing for Mika (Armenia) team in European Club Cups for the last four years and in all these years Armenian team has become very close to me and we are all good friends now.

During your school years you introduced yourself in World and Asian youth tournaments for several times. Which youth tournament do you remember most and what does it relate to?

I would say my World U-14 title in 2004 was very precious for me, as it was my first world title. It was very important, because I was very close to the World U-10 title from 2000 to 2003. I had to satisfy myself with silver medals and after continuous efforts I achieved the title in 2004.

Interview with Viktorija Chmilyte
Dear Viktorija, as I know it’s not your first visit to Armenia.  What do you remember from your previous visits and what were your impressions?

In fact it’s my third tournament in Armenia. I have played here at the Olympiad in 1996 and at the World Championship among girls U-20 in 1999. Good treatment towards chess had made a great impression on me. Also the nature is beautiful and food is very tasty in Armenia.

How did your chess views change after you won the European Championship? What memories do you still keep from that tournament?

I don’t think that any views have been changed after my victory at the European Championship. Indeed, I was very glad for that victory and I have also great memories connected with Tbilisi. On the other hand I understand perfectly well, that in that tournament everything took a favorable turn for me. I try to accept quietly all my victories and loses, as well.
Interview with Tatiana Kosintseva
KosintsevaTatianaDear Tatiana, as I know it’s not your first visit to Armenia.  What do you remember from your previous visits and what were your impressions?

This is my second visit to Armenia. In 2010 I was in Jermuk. The beauty of the local nature, warm and welcoming attitude of the people made a great impression on me. The universal love and respect for chess is felt everywhere in Armenia.

You have a long list of chess successes. Which of your victories do you consider as the most important one and what was the best year for you?

Really it is difficult to determine which of the victories was the most important one. As for me, every victory has its specific value. Every competition is a distance with its fallings and raisings, with the entering of which you should solve tasks. And when you show the maximum result, it means that you have managed to gather all the necessary factors in one place. And the most successful year was 2010.
