2015 is the Year of Literature in Russia

Pushkin, Gogol and Akhmatova to be symbols of Russia's Year of Literature

The decreeing of 2015 as "The year of Literature" in Russia looks a bit weird. I don't know if Vladimir Putin has any hidden agenda behind it(Is Mr Putin a literature lover, by the way?), but I welcome it considering that literature has already taken a backseat and very few people talk literature these days, and even those who talk it like to sub-categorize it under Entertainment.

I wonder if Mikhail Shiskin is going to participate in any of those "interesting, large-scale" events that will be held across Russia round the year.
