...Sergei Mikhailovich Murashko, Muchkap, pensioner: - All my adult life I have been writing poems and participating in various poetry readings. Unsurprisingly, when I learnt about the Festival of Poetry "Pasternak and Muchkap," I could not help taking part in this event. Last year I participated in the first festival, today it is my second festival. I specifically wrote a poem dedicated to this festival and to Boris Pasternak and his priceless poetry.
