The voices of these people must continue to be heard. The offer should expressly also apply to cultural and media workers from Russia and Belarus who are in opposition to the regimes in their home countries and are therefore threatened. Baden-Württemberg should also become a safe haven for them. The President of the State Parliament proposes grants for refugee artists and journalists so that they can continue to work in Germany. According to a spokesman, Aras is currently promoting its plan in the state parliament. © dpa-infocom, dpa:220308-99-438802/2
