Василь Васильович Дячук (* 25.3.1972 in Mukachevo) Ukrainian-Slovak composer and Grandmaster, see wikipedia lv, uk. "Vasyl Dyachuk became citizen of Slovakia on January 14th, 2016 and Grandmaster in composition in 2010. He is not the youngest Grandmaster alive (Reto Aschwanden is) but obtaining so early this title, usually attained at the age of maturity, is an extraordinary achievement. He usually composes twomovers (sometimes fairy twomovers) and won the twomover section of the PCCC-50 Jubilee Tourney. He has achieved excellent results at the WCCI: 4th place in 1998-2000, 3rd in 2001-2003, 1st and World Champion in 2004-2006 and 3rd in 2007-2009. He was also the judge of the twomover section of the 2nd FIDE World Cup in Composing 2011."
