Joint statement of the Trade Mission of the Russian Federation in Canada and Canada Eurasia Russia Business Association (CERBA) on passing of Mr. Andrey Varichev, General Director of "Metalloinvest" LLC

27 Apr 2020 12:45 PM | Alexander Belyasov (Administrator)

The Trade Representation of the Russian Federation in Canada and Canada Eurasia Russia Business Association (CERBA) express their sincere condolences to Ms. Irina Annenkova, her family, friends and colleagues on the untimely death of Mr. Andrey Varichev.

The name of Mr. Andrey Varichev is inextricably linked with the development of trade, economic and humanitarian cooperation between Russia and Canada.

The energy and indomitable will of Mr. Andrey Varichev were the drivers of the Russia-Canada Business Council in the difficult conditions of declining trust between the countries. His personal participation in the implementation of joint projects has allowed him to remain active in many areas of trade and economic relations between Russia and Canada.

His personal role in the implementation of humanitarian projects in Canada with the participation of businesses, universities and a wide coverage of the Russian-speaking population of Canada is invaluable.

This is a bereavement for all of us, we grieve with his family and friends.

May his soul rest in peace, and may God bless his family.


Gilles Breton

National Chairman
