Three questions for Gérard Depardieu

French actor Gérard Depardieu is in trouble with Russian liberals for his planned move to Russia.

Vladimir Putin granted Russian citizenship to Depardieu last week, following Depardieu’s renunciation of his French citizenship in a dispute over France’s high taxes.

Depardieu plans to settle in the Russian Republic of Mordovia, where the republic’s head of government has offered him an apartment or a plot of land on which to build a house.

This move has earned a stern rebuke from the liberal party Yabloko (a member party of Liberal International). The chairman of Yabloko’s Mordovia branch has written an open letter to Depardieu with three questions to which he would like an answer.
