From comments made by Russian chess officials in July, following an incident at the Moscow Open in which a chess-playing robot broke the finger of its seven-year-old competitor. Translated from the Russian.

This robot is unique
This robot has been playing for a long time
The robot was created by a very talented inventor
It has performed in many open areas
We need to give the robot time
The boy hurried
He did not realize he first had to wait
There are safety rules and the child violated them
It happens
Apparently, it is necessary to warn children
The robot is absolutely safe
