He said that Waters was free to perform in a private venue if he wishes. Wantuch spearheaded a symbolic resolution to declare Waters “persona non grata” in Krakow. He also invited Waters on Monday to join him on a visit to Ukraine to see for himself the extent of devastation caused by Russian attacks.
