Russian writer Boris Akunin reported on his Telegram channel that the prosecutor’s office is forcing Russian theaters to remove his name from the posters of productions.
In this regard, theaters are faced with the question of whether to remove Akunin’s name from posters or completely close performances. According to the writer, he agrees that “nameless posters and programs” will be preserved in history.
Boris Akunin also noted that he does not receive any deductions for showing performances based on his works.
Recall that last week the writer announced that he had finished a new novel from the series “The Adventures of Erast Fandorin”. It is known that in the new book the main character will be the valet Masahiro Shibata, a friend of the detective Fandorin.
Note that Boris Akunin became the best-selling author of 2022 in Russia.
