Miroslav Volodymyrovych Popovich passed away
On February 10, 2018 a prominent philosopher Myroslav Popovich has passed away. He was a wonderful person, a scientific and moral authority for a lot of us. Few people know that he enhanced the development of sociological science in Ukraine; for some time he led the first sociological department at the Academy of Sciences of Ukraine - the department of methodology and techniques of social research at the Institute of Philosophy. In 1992, as a Vice-Rector for Science at NaUKMA, he helped KIIS to establish the contact with the newly born university and started there the Department of Sociology. KIIS has been cooperating with the NaUKMA sociology department for 25 years already, and it's office is situated in one of the NaUKMA buildings. We express our sincere condolences to the relatives, as well as to all who knew Myroslav Popovich and who mourn like we do.
