MINSK, April 2. /TASS/. Yevgeny Yevtushenko is a poet that will remain in the history of the Russian poetry, Nobel Prize winner in literature Svetlana Alexievich told TASS on Saturday.
"It is insignificant any more than some people liked him and the others do not. A great poet has died, who will be present in the history of the Russian poetry," the writer said.
He always came across during meetings as "a man of tremendous energy and it was fascinating," she said. "I remember his photographs, where he was young and handsome… I recall his bright jackets and incredible ties…he did many fine gestures in life," Alexievich added.
The poet was able "to treat his illness and imperfection with humor, which is also very decent," Alexievich added.
It was reported earlier celebrated Soviet and Russian poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko died in the United States on Saturday aged 84.
