Vadim B. Lukov died on 12 August 2016 at the age of 63. He was a brilliant career diplomat who left his mark during all his postings and assignments.

Ambassador Lukov played no small part in the tremendous success of BRICS, serving as Russia’s Sous-Sherpa for 2009-2015.

One of the highlights of his career was the time spent in South Africa as the Ambassador of the Russian Federation to the Republic of South Africa and Kingdom of Lesotho (1997-2000).

He was also Russia’s Ambassador to Belgium (2004-2009).

Our heartfelt and sincere condolences to his family and friends.
