Ulyukayev Writes Poetry

Central Bank First Deputy Chairman Alexei Ulyukayev has published a book of poetry, Komsomolskaya Pravda reported on its website.

The volume is titled "Someone's Coast" and features poems on life and youth, according to the newspaper. While he is unfazed by criticism of his job at the Central Bank, Ulyukayev said he is "uncomfortable" about his writing being scrutinized, the report said.

"Poetry, it's very personal," Ulyukayev said, according to Komsomolskaya Pravda. "In a sense, this is a strip. Undressing in public is very scary. You speak frankly, and you are laughed at."
