Problems 1028 & 1029: Mikhail Gershinsky & Aleksandr Pankratiev - Helpmates
aleksandr.pankratievmichael.gershinski(31.12.2019) Few more originals in last minutes of the year. Happy to present two nice helpmates from the Russian masters with apologies for the belated publication. With this I have published all helpmate originals I have received. If I missed any please resend. (Seetharaman)
