At the end of the summer of the last year of the outgoing millennium, Grigory Aleksandrovich Tkachenko died suddenly. The scientist, teacher and organizer who personified the brightest hopes of Russian Oriental studies passed away prematurely. We have lost a man who is so well suited to the Chinese symbol of the lotus-a knight flower that grows clean out of the mud.

A two-year military service was followed ... Read more
