Ekaterina Genieva

Genieva

Those of us who had a priviledge to know Ekaterina Iur’evna Genieva,  director general of the Russian State Library for Foreign Literature, and those who didn’t have this chance were very sad to hear the news that she had died on 9 July after a long and courageous battle with cancer.  Several days before that she gave an interview to Medusa: ‘I have lots of daring plans but very little time’. See also a full transcript of her discussion with Alexander Arkhangel’skii on 27 June.

Our sincere sympathies go to her family, friends and colleagues in the Russian State Library for Foreign Literature.
