Posted by admin

MOSCOW (AFP) – French actor Gerard Depardieu confirmed Thursday that he had applied for a Russian passport and said he was ”pleased” to have been granted citizenship by President Vladimir Putin.

”Yes, I filed a passport application and I am pleased that it was accepted. I love your country, Russia — its people, its history, its writers,” he said in an open letter broadcast on Russian TV station Pervyi Kanal, following a highly publicised row with French authorities over their proposal to increase the tax rate for millionaires to 75 percent.
