    "He is also remembered for being a pioneer in catastrophe theory and solved XIII Hilbert problem. He has been awarded a Fields medal but Soviet government impeded him to accept the prize. He will live forever in the work of people of our community and a lot more will be the fruits coming from his ideas."

    The wording here suggests he got the fields medal maybe. Do you know about that? What does "Impeded" mean? Delayed? Stopped completely? RIP.

    He didn't receive the Fields Medal... As far as I remember it was a pretty sordid affair with very heavy politics in the back...

    I'll see if I can find something on the web.
