An interesting news source

ANU Chess Club member Andrey Bliznyuk steered me in the direction of an alternative, and interesting, chess news source. Chess-news.ru is a Russian website that covers the latest in world chess. Now most of the site is in Russian, which makes it difficult for me to read, but they do have an English translation for most of their news stories. Apparently not all the stories get translated, but looking through the archives, a lot of important ones do. Probably the most important feature of the site is the interviews carried out, and published. Whether it is a language issue, but they seem to be a little more in depth (with the Eastern European players at least), than the ones I have normally seen. Of course the tendency is towards to more sensational aspects of chess (including the ever present personal conflicts), but I guess this is what drives traffic in their direction.
