The composer is listed on p. 22 in the pdf "They left their mark - Prominent Latvian chess composers" by Imants Dulbergs (available online): "This author was involved with chess composition since 1967; there are over 200 chess problems published by him."

Yes, schmerl, this is a misprint as bNc2 is missing. Therefore there we get the invalidating dual 2. Bd4# in the variations after the key 1. Be5.

Ļevs Ulanovs (* 10.12.1922, † 17.6.2004) Latvian composer.
