MOSCOW, April 1. /TASS/. Yevgeny Yevtushenko encapsulated unique features of a citizen, an artist and an individual seeking after the future, First Secretary of the Moscow Union of Writers and ex-culture minister of Russia Yevgeny Sidorov told TASS on Saturday.
Sidorov is author of the first Yevtushenko’s biography published in the USSR in early 1980s and translated into many languages.
"This is not merely loss of a big friend for me but also of an excellent Russian poet and great artist in words. Nevertheless, I understand in my mind that there is no return to the past. Yevtushenko personified unique properties of a citizen and a word-painter; he was loved and understood as a man of the present and of the future," Sidorov added.
It was reported earlier celebrated Soviet and Russian poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko died in the United States on Saturday aged 84.
