    THE RUSSIAN TEAM HAS TWICE ENTERED THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP - IN 1958 IN SWEDEN AND IN 1962 IN CHILE. IN NEITHER COMPETITION WAS THE SOVIET TEAM SUCCESSFUL.

    IN THE THREE YEARS SINCE THE CHILE CHAMPIONSHIPS, GREAT CHANGES HAVE TAKEN PLACE IN THE COMPOSITION OF THE SOVIET TEAM. ONE OF THE MOST PROMISING PLAYERS IS 23-YEAR-OLD MURTAZ KHURTSILAVA - A NEWCOMER TO THE TEAM.
