Krasnodar, 4 November. Today, our guest at Yug Times is the writer Vladimir Runov, recognized as Outstanding Cultural Figure of the Russian Federation, author of many literary works.

- I never thought I would live to be this old, and I certainly never thought I would write as a child. My youth was spent in the Urals. I graduated from the History Faculty in Yekaterinburg, and it was only afterwards that I fell ill with television. Moreover, I did not like the climate in the Urals. At minus 50 degrees it is very difficult to build a career and in general to enjoy life. So I made the decision to move to the warmer Krasnodar. It was close to me since my childhood, because we had relatives here who we used to visit in summer. As chance would have it, I got a job as a freelance writer at a TV channel, then called “Regional Television Studio”)

I worked in that position for 13 years. I don’t think I made too much progress up the career ladder, however. I just gained invaluable experience. But considering how often they used to fire me after I worked there, I can still say that I lasted a long time. After that I worked at the prestigious, in those years, Center for Scientific and Technical Information, from where I was quickly invited to the position of assistant to the deputy chairman of the regional executive committee. This position sounds much more important than it actually was. But it helped me learn how to communicate in an environment where it is not customary to show my mettle. It was good for me, I was young and ambitious.

- What advice would you give to aspiring writers?

- Give up. In all seriousness, writing is very demanding on a person. So if one is not ready for this kind of work, you shouldn’t even start. The main thing a writer must have is the ability to do it. If you want to be a writer who will be read, you have to have a good literary language, and not many people can do that anymore. Do you have any regrets? -Presently, I think I regret most of all possibilities I haven’t exploited.

- What do you think about the future of Krasnodar?

- Krasnodar can’t develop until there are no businesses.Recently, I was at ZIP. Some acquaintances worked there. I remember it as a huge factory where hundreds of people worked. Today it’s a shopping and entertainment center. Is that what the future holds?

In general, I believe that Krasnodar needs to change completely its development strategy and become not only a business center, but also an industrial one.
