Jul-21-08  zoat22: Malaniuk was in at least one of the PCA Intel Grand Prix things...
Feb-10-09  Pyke: According to Alexei Shirov Malaniuk was one of the main contributers and proponents of the Archangelsk variation of the Ruy Lopez.

Looking at his games in this variation it, he seemed to handle it quite well.

  wordfunph: "The simple strategy of attacking your opponent's pieces and creating threats on every move has a cumulative effect. In 5-6 moves it reaches a critical mass and brings about the collapse of his defense."

above link translates to:

The chess federation of Ukraine and Ternopil region with deep regret report that on July 2, in the 60th year, the three-time champion of Ukraine, the silver medalist of the USSR championship of 1986, the chess Olympiad of 1996, the world championship team in 1993, the bronze Prize-winner of the 1998 Chess Olympiad in the national team of Ukraine, winner and prize-winner of a number of national and international competitions, international grandmaster <Vladimir Pavlovich Malanyuk> and express his sincere condolences to his family and friends. The memory of VP Malanyuk, a cheerful and optimistic person with a fine sense of humor, committed to chess throughout his life, will always remain with us.

Jul-03-17  cunctatorg: I would like to read any great game of the late Grandmaster at his favorite (as Black) opening of the Leningrad Dutch as a game of the day, entitled: "The Siege of Leningrad"!

Of course the aforementioned title is ... a banalite, therefore you could put it as: "The Siege of the Leningrad Dutchman from Ukraine!"

Jul-03-17  bubuli55: Rest In Peace
