>From the Darwin Museum website:

V. G. Ochev memorial volume 2009 pdf

The pdf can be searched and copied (so text can be pasted into online
translation tools).

NOTE: The volume contains descriptions of a number of new fossil fish
taxa (including the genera Arctovitalia, Moltenia, Kapokichthys) that
do no show up in any of the online zoological and paleontological
databases I checked.

Includes a biography, list of publications, and various papers on
vertebrate paleontology topics with English title and abstract for
each paper.
