In memory of Sergei Khrushchev

Our friend and colleague, Sergei Nikitich Khrushchev, has died on June 18, 2020, missing his 85th birthday by two weeks.

Throughout his life Sergei carried a heavy burden: the burden of his famous name. Not many are capable of carrying such a burden; usually it crushes the individual, leaving nothing but a name. Yet, what surprised everyone who knew Sergei Nikitich was the light touch and elegance with which he handled his name. If the saying “grace under pressure” applies to anyone, it is to the way Sergei Khrushchev conducted his life.
