MOSCOW, January 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has expressed condolences to relatives of Academician Nikolai Shmelyov and the team of the Institute of Europe of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
In a telegram, which is put on the government website, on Friday, Medvedev said Shmelyov had risen from an economist to the director of the Institute of Europe.
“He is an author of many works devoted to international economic relations and their impact on the development of our country. Nikolai Petrovich was a famous political writer, which thinks about the future of Russia,” the premier said.
“I ask to convey my sympathies to all who knew him and worked with this surprising and all-round man,” he said.
Shmelyov was one of the outstanding economists of the perestroika period and the reforms in Russia at the end of 1980’s and the beginning of 1990’s.
He died at the age of 77 of heart attack on January 6. The farewell ceremony is being held now.
