MOSCOW , December 23. /TASS/. Russian Chess Federation has expressed concern over the reports in Turkish mass media on the ostensible operations of the federation President, Andrei Filatov, a press release issued by the organization said.
A number of media quoted the son of Turkish President Tayyip Recep Erdogan earlier, who said Ankara suspected Filatov of purchasing oil from the Islamic State terrorist grouping and further resales.
"The Federation has gotten down to scrutinizing the situation together with experts from the Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan international law firm to verify the source of this false information and the precision of a translation of Erdogan Jr.'s statements," the report said.
"The President of the Federation, Andrei Filatov, plans to take all the legal steps to defend his rights, interests and business reputation," it said. "The Federation warns that any further spread of the deceptive report will bring up legal consequences."
