A special session in honor of the anniversary of Evgeny M. Andreev was held on November 21, as part of the international conference "Demographic trends in Russia: Legacy of the Soviet Era or a new tendency?"

After that, colleagues and friends congratulated the hero of the day. Vladimir M. Shkolnikov, scientific supervisor of the International Laboratory for Population and Health, shared his memories of the heated debates with Evgeny at the House of Scientists in the early 1990s, which, nevertheless, did not interfere with their cooperation later on.
