Me ironically a huge number of friends who came to my birthday. So I have myself to take seriously.

— In General, how is the mood? Today, now in connection with your holiday? The situation in the country and in the world?

In our country the situation is wonderful. Your country is a nightmare. So I for Russia is very painful, and for Israel very proudly.

— It is clear. But is it not left things to be proud of in Russia?

— Is. I am very proud of your audience. I have in Russia is amazing the viewer.

Well, your jubilee in Jerusalem — the occasion for an entire city or local mishpucha?

The whole city is free, fortunately. It is a local event. Will come more than a hundred people to me to drink. It’s all close people.

But looking at your endless optimism… But you are very volumetric in this sense, man, deep.

“You know, I’m one sad poem, I’ll read it.

I like to be old,

Do not indulge in remorse.

With sympathy and disgust.
