      "Russian literature is represented here, and it shows that Russian writers know Serbian writers, and they maintain friendly relations and cooperation", - Russian Ambassador to Bosnia and Herzegovina, Petr Ivantsov said at the ceremony.

      Zakhar Prilepin expressed gratitude for awarding him the prize and for his books The Abode and Seven Lives publihed in the Serbian language for the first time.
