From a Facebook page of Russian satirist Victor Shenderovich:
Gérard Depardieu, not yet settled in his apartment in Saransk, fucked off to Belgium. (Sorry, I honestly was looking for another verb - and couldn't find one).To remind you:
In an interview he said that his short stay in Russia once again convinced him that he is a Frenchman.
It surely took him a long time, I can tell you.
I hope the Federal channels will tell about this turn of events re the great artist in as many details as in the past.
Actor Gerard Depardieu is paying tax of just six per cent in his adopted country of Russia after Vladimir Putin gave him a passport last year, it was revealed earlier today.Apparently even the minuscule 6% task can't help to overcome... er... you know what, don't you?
He quit his native France over the punitive 75 percent wealth tax imposed by the socialist government.
The 65-year-old actor filed his tax return on time in the remote region of Mordovia, better known for its prison camps, where he is registered as a self-employed businessman.
Oh, and the caption on the picture (from Nasha Canada) says (very approximately, at least it could be translated into a pun, albeit not precisely the original one): Depart-ieu.
