I collaborate with pleasure with experts engaged in study of monuments and wooden architecture in particular.
This collaboration is reciprocally interesting. Thus, I get exclusive information (scientific publications,
drawings etc.) for the "Wooden churches of Ukraine". By publishing on the web the scientists
make their materials available for the search in the internet, and so, their audience is being strongly enlarged.

I'd like to thank Mr. Malakov for his unfailing willingness to help, advise and suggest. I frequently recieve from him new photos of little-known wooden churches and other buildings, and also the valuable archive materials. Due to Mr. Malakov a range of rare books, such as M. Sopoliha "The pearls of folk architecture", T.Gewryk "Masterpieces in wood", the articles by D. Scherbakivskyj and O. Hutsalo from the Collection of the Ukrainian Scientific Society Art Section (Kyiv, 1921) were scanned and enriched my e-library.

He undertook a titanic work of digitizing literature and paper photoarchives. It's nice
when after bringing a huge heap of magazines and books to a person for scanning you see him not frightened but smiling.
After passing through his hands any materials are perfectly ordered and prepared to take their place both at our
website and in "Myslene Drevo" - a universal
hierarchic data base dedicated to history and culture of Ukraine.
