An outstanding patriot and a true “leader of youth” – that is how his colleagues sometimes called him. Sergei Pavlov was a man of exceptional talent and his homeland can be proud of it. Everybody who knew Sergei Pavlov personally will agree to that. Pavlov saw far and wide, had a great erudition, as well as communication talent, therefore he was surrounded by friends, among whom were Komsomol leaders, people of creative professions and cosmonauts.
