Ukrainian chess player Kateryna Lagno has been granted Russian citizenship by Vladimir Putin, informs Itar-Tass. The statement has been published on the official portal today. "To comply with the request of Lateryna Lagno, born on December 27 1989 in Ukraine to obtain Russian citizenship," says the document. 

Thus the mission "from Ukraine to Russia" might be accomplished. Kateryna has officially become Russian citizen and has the right to represent Russian national team (Ukrainian chess federation disagrees with the decision), the Organizers of the Tromso Olympiad allowed all previously excluded federations to partiipate in the upcoming event, so now it seems that all the legal issues - questioning if the citizen of Ukraine has the right to represent Russian national team - might be settled. Meanwhile, Lagno stresses her decision to switch federations is not politically motivated.
