Major Tournaments in Russia: Ban?

Can you elaborate exactly? I don't have that much background information so what is going on here?

Yeah #2

"President of the Russian Chess Federation Andrei Filatov commented on the possible deprivation of FIDE competitions in Russia." makes it sound like they are banning FIDE

but then they say they are hosting a ton of big tournaments? Maybe my english is too lousy but can someone explain?

A shame -- chess, and sport in general, can be the strongest olive branch on the tree.

They do nothing to prevent or even encourage doping. That's why there might be an all-sports ban.
