According to Pauls, cultural figures should not suffer because of the political situation. “Now I am far from all this, I try to take sides and not interfere. This is a very complex process. No matter what I say – they will attack me from one side and the other. I am in favor of artists being able to cross the border easily and perform.” “It once started well in Soviet times, but it ended as it was. All the money has already been decided there,” he said.
