We have learnt with great sorrow and grief about the sudden passing of Professor Anatol Święcicki, a great physician from Ukraine. Professor Anatol Święcicki (in Ukrainian: Анатолій Станіславович Свінціцький, in English: Anatoliy Svintsitskyy, in Russian: Анатолий Станиславович Свинцицкий) was born on May 2, 1948 in Zhytomyr (Ukraine) as a son of a Pole, Stanisław Święcicki. In 1975, he graduated with honours of the Kiev Medical Institute (now: the Bogomolets National Medical University). In 1981, he obtained a PhD upon presentation of the thesis entitled: Functional state of the heart muscle in the process of management of infection-induced bronchial asthma. He was a disciple of Professor Anatoliy Petrovitch Peleshchuk (1913–2010).
