Nikolai Rubtsov was remembered all over Russia the day before. January 3, 2023 – 87 years since the birth of the famous poet. He is called the singer of the Russian North. The lyrical poems combine classical and folklore traditions, philosophy and love for the Russian countryside, quiet sadness and the same quiet joy. Flowers were laid at the memorial plaque today at Rubtsov’s house-museum in the village of Nikolskoye. And in Cherepovets, the poems of Nikolai Rubtsov were read on the banks of the Sheksna, at the monument to the poet.
