Today, on March 5, 2011, our colleague and dear friend Galina Kozhevnikova passed away in Moscow at the age of 36. Galina was a founder and director of the SOVA Center.
Galya was a daring and passionate person. Trained as an archive researcher, she went on to make her mark as expert in the field of nationalism and xenophobia in Russia.
Galya suffered a hard disease but went on with her work to the last.
We will soon publish Galya’s last review on xenophobia and racism in Russia in 2010.
