MOSCOW, November 20 (Itar-Tass) — President Putin has sent a message of condolences to the relatives of famous science-fiction writer Boris Strugatsky in connection with the writer's death, the Kremlin press service said on Tuesday.
"Boris Natanovich Strugatsky was one of the most bright and talented writers of his epoch. He was a real master, arresting the imagination of many generations. The books he created in literary alliance with his brother, Arkady Strugatsky, represent a whole epoch in the history of Russian literature and in the life of our country. His books remain highly up-to-date to the present day," Putin said in the message.
Boris Strugatsky died on Monday. He was 79.
Boris Strugatsky and Arkady Strugatsky gained popularity as the authors of fantastic novels which "raised" several generations of young people. Seven films and a number of theater and TV plays based on their novels were staged.
Deputy of the St.Petersburg legislature Maxim Reznik has suggested on Tuesday awarding the title of an honorary citizen of St. Petersburg to Boris Strugatsky posthumously.
