Dr. Mikhail Korenman was the leading figures behind bringing former Russian President Mikhail Gorbachev to Lindsborg, Kansas for the Chess for Peace event. He was also responsible for bringing over 50 young Americans to Moscow as part of the Chess for Peace initiative. Here was a picture of Dr. Korenman in Moscow at the Petrosian Chess School. Next to him is US Champion Alexander Onishchuk and me, followed by some very important Russian chess officials. This was right before one of the chess matches between the Russian and American young players.
