*Boris Fedorovic Volodin (1950-2005) was an internationally recognized Russian librarian and library historian, who was actively involved in Bibliotheca Baltica until his premature death.

I knew Boris Voodin personally for many years. He was truly a person of European culture and values. His intelligence and erudition are manifested both in his research and sincere cooperation with colleagues from many countries. Boris was among the participants of the first Bibliotheca Baltica simposium in L├╝beck in 1992. Today, in the light of tragic events, he would not support “putinism”. Most likely, Boris Volodin would have gone into exile.
