Putin Grants Gérard Depardieu Russian Citizenship
The obstreperous screen legend has been loudly announcing his plans to leave France over the new government's tax increases on wealthy citizens. Now President Vladimir Putin has offered the actor a Russian passport and residency permit. Said a grateful Depardieu, "I love your culture, your intelligence. My father was a communist of that era. He listened to Radio Moscow! That is my culture too." Yahoo! (Reuters) 01/03/13
