I'm still not absolutely certain that Nikolaevsky is dead. It's unusual for FIDE to keep a rating card online for deceased players (Nikolaevsky, Yuri V rating card at FIDE). Perhaps the Russian Chess Federation hasn't told FIDE yet, but apparently it's been 6 years. It seems that a mistake has been made, but is it FIDE's mistake or ours?
