Several leading Russian and Chinese chess players are not participating in the Women's World Team Chess Championship that is held in Astana, Kazakhstan, RIA Novosti reports.

Russian and Chinese teams are the favorites of the Championship that will be held till March 11. However, China’s two-time world champion Hou Yifan, who is ranked No. 2 Woman and No. 1 Girl in the January 2013 FIDE World Rankings, has not come to Astana for the championship.

Nadezhda Kosintseva and Tatiana Kosintseva are not playing for the Russian team because of a conflict with their senior coach Sergey Rublevsky. Details of the conflict are not known. Rublevsky has confirmed that the girls refused to play for the team.

Chief coach of the national chess teams of Russia Yevgeny Bareyev said that “Kosintseva sisters have ignored the invitation to the training camp prior to the tournament and this decision means that they refused to play for the Russian team.” "One of the girls is in the United States now and is negotiating with American Chess Federation,” Bareyev continued.

The Women's World Team Chess Championship 2013 kicked off in Astana on March 2.

The Kazakhstan team consisting of World Grand Master Guliskhan Nakhbayeva, the youngest female Grand Master of Kazakhstan Dinara Saduakassova, silver winner of the Slovenia World Youth Championship Zhansaya Abdumalik and participants of the Istanbul Chess Oylmpiad Madina Davletbayeva and Gulmira Dauletova is taking part in the Championship.
