Open Letter from FIAS Vice President Mr. M.G.Shultz
During more than three years the direction of FIAS represented by its president Shestakov V.B. tries to create private commercial organization using the platform created during long-time history of development called SAMBO.
Essentially it is an attempt of theft, probably, with the aim of further sell of our kind of sport. For this it is used the tactics of defamation of people and organizations that occupied with sambo development throughout their life. These are attempts of liquidation or compulsion to sell famous successful projects in Sambo.

  • Regarding Asian SAMBO Championshipa and so called Championship of Stars
    Dear colleagues,

       Today we got acquainted with the publication that declares that the representatives of Australia and Oceania participated in the Championship conducted by you. http://sambo-asia.org/press/5252/
       We would like to inform you, that Continental Federation and the National Federation of the region have not received invitations and did not delegate representatives.    As we understood, some "Russians" engaged in "Raiders", and create "alternative federations" and destroy the unity and fruitful dialogue in the development of Sambo. If this is participation of bogus samboists this is the product of such a split, we suggest you discuss the situation soberly, to overcome the current crisis of the development of Sambo.

  • To The Members of FIAS Executive Committee
    I am becoming increasingly concern about the direction FIAS has been taking over the past 2 years. Since the inception of FIAS under the founder Fernando Compte in 1985 I have been involved at all levels. In 1986 I founded the British Sombo Federation a properly constituted Amateur body this is recognised by UKSport (Government funded sports Organisation) as the Governing body for Sombo (Sambo) in Great Britain. Since 1985 I have seen many changes up and till recently those changes were for the better. Yet now I see a lot of disharmony, which I feel, could lead to the destruction of FIAS and relegating Sambo to be just a Sport practised in Russia like it was in the 1930s. So what are the problems?

  • Open letter to all Presidents of National Federations of SAMBO and particularly to my friend Dalil Skalli
    I read your letter attentively and understood that Im one of those truth-seekers that tries to subject the president of FIAS to the glare of truth. Moreover, four years ago that was me who proposed to elect Mr. Shestakov as president of FIAS and I withdrew myself from elections....

  • Dear President Skalli
    I have received and read your new proposal to engage in a meeting to bring all parties together, and while the spirit of this initiative is to be commended it fails in that it ignores the basic processes currently in place by our FIAS and our own Pan American Amateur SAMBO Federation statutes...

  • Dear respected colleague and member of the current FIAS management committee,
    You are absolutely right that these issues should not degenerate to a war of words, but I am not in a position to say who is right. I am however as part of FIAS and ASF extremely concerned with the promulgation of Sambo and while there has been a great deal of media hype in the few events we have managed to participate, I do not see any real support and interest from FIAS for the development of Sambo in the Asian continent...

    Recently, the information field of our SAMBO has become filled with plenty of emails of, putting it mildly, not very correct content. "Truth-seekers" allegedly are trying to unmask the FIAS President Mr. Shestakov...

  • In response to Letter From David Rudman
    David Rudman is probably the most respected man in SAMBO along with Fernando Compte. He is Known as a brilliant Samboists, Coach and was an excellent FIAS President. It was he who re-united all the different SAMBO fractions. So when I read the attached letter I was shocked. The time has come to listen to people with his experience and many others should be listened to as well. SAMBO should be an International Sport for the benefit of all its members.

  • To the FIAS President Mr. Shestakov V.B
    Mr. President!
    I express my profound disagreement with your actions to organize second Asian Continental SAMBO Federation in Uralsk.

    This action is contrary to the Charter of FIAS, illegal and destructive. There are not so many Sambists around the World, and your actions on the fragmentation of the SAMBO Federations led to a nervous situation and do not unite all Sambists on the planet. Such steps certainly lead us not to the Olympic movement, but in the opposite direction. So, that the gathering of 8 Asian federations out of 26 federations registered in Asia is totally illegitimate.

  • "To be or not to be", FIAS Application to IOC
    It was announced during the last FIAS Congress in Minsk (November 7th, 2012), that the President of FIAS, Mr. Shestakov had sent a FIAS application in order to achieve recognition by the IOC. My request from November 1st (attached) to provide us a copy of such application has remained without a response. Today I received a copy of that application (FIAS to IOC) from Vice President of FIAS Mr. Shultz and was stunned by how unprofessionally it looked...    Read more...

  • Caution Moshanov!
    The first time I discovered this name was from a letter sent to me by Martin Clark-President of British SAMBO Federation. I have known him for more than 40 years. Mr. Clark wrote that someone by the name of Moshanov had organized the SAMBO Association for English-speaking countries, even without first consulting with the Presidents of SAMBO Federations in these countries.
