Turkish gambit. Epilogue to the World Chess Olympiad in Istanbul

Male and female teams of Ukraine returned from the XL World Chess Olympiad with bronze medals. Is this triumph, success or just a natural result? It appears difficult to give a definite answer, but to have an open mind, we should consider not only the peripetias of the current performance of our chess-players, but also apply to the history of their participation in this the most prestigious team chess competition.
