"When someone is a poet, that’s not a suit you put on and take off. It’s a way of being in the world — a vocation, a calling. Russia treasures its poets — they represent the essence of bravery and freedom, beauty and truth. Russians turn to poetry to express the soul of the times and hang onto what it means to be human in unbelievably difficult times."
