Earlier we reported on how Boris Spassky had to flee from France to Russia. Later it seemed like the situation was controversial, because his sister and son commented on the events using the term "abduction".
Above you can see an interview with Boris Spassky for WhyChess.com. Briefly speaking, Boris says he is now feeling better, following chess events and hoping to hold a chess training session for kids soon. He also mentions that a certain sponsor is supporting him and paying for the medical treatment. Talking about his relatives, the ex-World Chess Champion says he doesn't understand their motives. According to him, his sister started to try to participate in things she has no idea about, and there is a distance between him and his son. They don't communicate. Boris confirmed once again that he hasn't been abducted, but decided to return to Russia himself. In part this decision was based on the fact that, in his opinion, he was treated badly by the medical institution in France. Additionally, he mentioned that some of his private belongings have been sold without his consent. When asked if another woman had played a role in his trip to Russia, Boris started making jokes and saying there is always a woman involved.
Also, Boris philosophically says that we are all mortal and can make mistakes. He refrains from making direct accusations and underscores that he is not looking for conflicts with anybody. When he came to France in 1976, he had to start from scratch. Now, he says, the time has come to start from scratch in Russia.
P.S. The final phrase of the interview: "I was suffering a lot when Fischer died".
