Dr. Oleg Marchenko

On last April 9th Dr. Oleg Marchenko – Member of the Management Committee of the “Club of Bologna” – died in Moskow after a long illness.
Oleg accompanied the history of our free organisation since its foundation; he always participated in Club’s meetings with such enthusiasm bringing his valuable experience in the field of international agricultural mechanization. But above all he always joined us with a smile, giving us a lot of humanity on every occasion. So, even before a Colleague, he has been a friend to meet with great pleasure.

We will remember him. May his soul rest in peace.

Marco Fiala - Secretary General
