It is with the deepest regret and sadness that we have to inform our partners, customers and friends that our Director, Yury A. Kalenyuk, lost his battle against cancer and died aged 73 on 18 July 2009. Yury was a cofounder of our company, a great translator and a wonderful person. All these years he was the "face" of our firm - his professional attitude, constant self-improvement, and strictness with himself became our company values. He was always eager to help us with his extensive knowledge and experience. In fact, Yury set an example for all of us, his colleagues. He really was a tremendous asset to our organization. He enjoyed a good joke, was a good speaker, he devoted verses to us on our birthdays, and radiated such a warmness that we will never forget. He will be deeply missed by all of us.
We extend our heartfelt condolences to his wife and children as they mourn his death. Yes, this is a grievous loss, but our company will continue to move forward and do our best to keep the traditions established by Yury A. Kalenyuk.
