Anna Muzychuk returns to native federation after 10 years

The news coming from Ukraine are sensational in a way: Anna Muzychuk returns to Ukrainian Chess Fedeation after ten years of representing Slovenia. The information has also been published on FIDE website. According to it Anna can start playing under Ukrainian flag from already tomorrow. 

24-year-old Anna Muzychuk was born in Ukraine. Although she was representing Slovenia since 2004, she lived in Ukraine. Her sister Mariya has been successfully playing for the Ukrainian team for several years already. The rumours on the possible return were on long ago, but nothing was really changing.

A week ago we got to know another Ukrainian player Kateryna Lagno moves to Russian federation, thus Muzychuk's return may be taken as a "compensation" for the team for the upcoming Olympiad. Anna is world number 4 in the current FIDE rating list with 2561 ELO points.
