Natalia comes to the GM category.
This notice is not a surprise, because Natalia was studying very strong before the event in Gibraltar. 
And of course, gives that Natalia had continued his effort, we think that in no more that a few years she will contend against all men of the GM group.

spassky must to take a charge in russian
The ascencion of Natalia to the top chess level keeps a relation with the presence in the russian's chess directives of big players. This is, with security, Boris Spassky. 
But because the chess world needs too to conserve the worlds and image of Fischer; i think is important that Boris Spassky comes to a chief charge in Fide, or in the russian chess; because he is one of the few friends that B. Fischer had.
