usheninaNew Women World Champion gave an interview to Yury Vasiliev, published at Answering a question on what she'd like to do being a world champion, Ushenina said:

"I'd like chess in Ukraine to get a new impulse. We have a lot of strong players, but it is desirable that a new generation grows, that children come to chess. Of course, most of them won't become champions, but studying chess is very good for development. As maximum, I'd like that chess becomes a subject in schools, as minimum, I'd like more children to study chess".
