For many years his life was connected with our institute, where he came to work in 1956 and where he rose from laboratory assistant to deputy director.

V.N. Okolovich paid great attention to the creation of the material and technical base of nuclear physics in the Republic. In 1967, under his leadership, the physical start-up of the WWR-K reactor was carried out. Great personal merit of V.N. Okolovich is the creation at the Institute of Nuclear Physics of an entire scientific school in the field of fission physics.

The administration, the trade union committee and the staff of the Institute of Nuclear Physics express their sincere condolences to the family and friends of Vladimir Nikolaevich
