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.

Minutes of the XV Extraordinary FIAS Congress

14 April 2005Moscow (Russia)
Ukraine Hotel

The Congress is opened by the Russian sambo federation President Mr. Sergey Eliseev; he is welcoming the delegates of the Congress to Russia and informing that at the FIAS Executive Committee meeting of the 29th of January2005 it was decided to hold the ?V Extraordinary FIAS Congress, and he is giving the floor to the FIAS General Secretary- Mr. Pranciscus Eigminas (Lithuania).

The chairman: I am proposing to commence the Congress.

Tikhomirov M.: I will not participate in this Congress, it must be postponed to the nearest World championship in Astana (Kazakhstan) (leaving the meeting hall).

The chairman: Im proposing to elect the counting board members: F. Pulatov (Uzbekistan), V. Perchik (Russia), F. Gerar (France).
- Any objection?
- Unanimously agreed.

The chairman: I am proposing to elect the following Secretariat members: I.Tsypurskiy, M. Borisov (both from Russia).
- Any objection?
- Unanimously agreed.

The chairman: The current agenda was approved at FIAS Executive Committee meeting of the 29th of January 2005 held in Moscow and distributed to all presidents of the national sambo federations.

1. Ref. The first issue: the report of the mandatory Commission. The floor is given to its chairman, Mr. Pavel Gorodnov.

P. Gorodnov (Check Republic): The 31 delegates of national federations of the 4 continents and 9 members of the FIAS Executive Committee got their mandates.

The chairman:
- Who is voting pro to approve the Report of the Mandatory commission?

For: 37
Against: none
Abstention: 2

In total, today the FIAS affiliates 39 countries with the right to vote and 8 candidate countries, so that the XV FIAS Congress is valid, I declare it opened.

2. The Report on main objectives of the FIAS activity and results of work for the period from 2002 2004.

The chairman: unfortunately, Mr. M. Tikhomirov does not participate in this Congress, and he did not attend the FIAS Executive Committee meeting on the 29th of Januar2005 in Moscow either.

In fact he eluded his activity as a president since he was elected a president at the Congress in Krasnoyarsk in 2001. But, during past years Tikhomirov managed a great deal of work on sambo worldwide development after the USSR collapse. We are thankful to him for this a lot.

We suggest the main objectives of the FIAS activities must be as follows:

  • to strengthen the relationship with GAISF;
  • to include Sambo into world games;
  • to become recognized by IOC;
  • to participate in work with non-olympic sports organizations;
  • to be affiliated with IWGA;
  • to develop sambo world championships among students in order to be recognized by the FISU;
  • to provide control over the sambo development in the national sambo federations FIAS members;
  • to provide the FIAS representation in the main international sports organizations;
  • to control the maintenance of the FIAS Statutes by FIAS members. In order to provide the fulfillment of the above indicated objectives it is needed:
  • to increase the quantity of members of the FIAS up to 75-80;
  • to create a continental federation of Africa and Oceania;
  • to rebirth the championships of frontier troops, Balkan Cup, Baltic countries
  • to create the Relief Fund to assist the national sambo federations-FIAS members

The members of the Executive Committee, chairmen of commissions, national federations presidents must participate in solving of these issues.

V.Yaprintsev: You were a brother-in-arms with M.Tikhomirov. Do you have to share the responsibility with him?

P.Eigminas: I suggest, that in the present situation there is my vain partially, but this is different matter, requiring lot of time to discuss.

C.Bruzat: We must not discuss the Past of Sambo, we must discuss the Future of Sambo.

M. Undaganov: We ourselves must work well within our local competence. One person can not answer for everything. The further president of FIAS has to submit his Program.

- Lets decide if we will elect the President or not? The chairman: I put the question to a vote.
Due to the counting board report we are having:

For: 33
Against: 5
Abstention: 1

3. The report of the Treasurer Mr.V.Shirokov for 1997-2001, 2001-2004 and the information for 1993-1997.

The chairman: Owing to absence of Mr. V. Shirokov, I propose to postpone this issue to the next Congress.
- Any objection?
- Unanimously agreed.

4. The adoption of changes and additions to the FIAS statutes

The chairman: You have received the proposals on additions and changes to the FIAS statutes. Have you got any comments? I am putting the question to a vote. How do you prefer to vote: proposal by proposal or by the list of proposals in total?

- Who is for voting by the list of proposals?
- unanimously agreed;

5. The election of the Executive Committee members, a treasurer, and Control and Revision commission.

The chairman: At the FIAS Executive committee meeting of the 29th of January2005 it was decided to recognize the powers of Mr. David Rudman as the President of the Continental federation of Pan-America.

I am putting the question of recognition of Mr. David Rudman powers as a President of the Continental federation of Pan-America to a vote.

M. Undaganov: - Objecting, I see this person for the first time, I do not know him.

D. Rudman: - I am proposing to charge Mr. Dalil Skalli with a creation of a continental federation of Africa. So, Mr. Skalli has to create African Sambo Continental federation, elect its president and after that to return to the above indicated question.
