Memory Eternal! Evgenii Viktorovich Tkachenko (1935-2018)

The Chancellery of the Head of the Imperial House of Russia regrets to announce the death of Evgenii Viktorovich Tkachenko — a prominent Russian scholar, chemist, professor, member of the Russian Academy of Education, and member of the State Commission for Academic Degrees and Titles in Education and Psychology — on the night of April 2, 2018, at the age of 84. 

Dr. Tkachenko was born in Omsk on March 21, 1935.  In 1958, he graduated from the Department of Applied Physics at the Urals Polytechnic Institute.  In 1964, he began teaching in the Chemistry Department of the Urals State University.  Between 1985 and 1992, he was the Dean of the Russian State Vocational Pedagogical University in Ekaterinburg.

Between 1992 and 1996, Dr. Tkachenko held the post of Minister of Education of the Russian Federation.

Evgenii Vikotorovich Tkachenko is the author of more than 480 scholarly publications, including 26 monographs, and has 25 inventions to his name.  Beyond his academic and teaching career, he was also broadly interested in a wide range of issues related to the history and culture of his country.

Dr. Tkachenko very deeply respected the Imperial House of Russia, and he met with the Head of the dynasty, H.I.H. the Grand Duchess Maria of Russia, and with her son and heir, H.I.H. the Grand Duke George of Russia, sharing with them his thoughts on the present and future state of education in Russia.  He also participated in a number of events organized by several institutions connected with and supporting the Imperial House, and was a member of combined juries for the International Competitions “Legal Culture:  The Foundation of the Harmonious Development of the Individual and Society,” and “Living Connection Across the Ages,’ which the Chancellery supports and helps to organize.

For his many achievements and years of service, Evgenii Vikorovich Tkachenko was awarded the Imperial Order of St. Anna II Class and received many formal letters of gratitude and acknowledgement from Grand Duchess Maria of Russia.

Evgenii Vikorovich Tkachenko will remain in the memory of all those who knew him as a kind, wise, warm-hearted, and noble man of integrity and conviction.

May the Lord grant his newly reposed servant Evgenii a place in the abode of the righteous.
