For Depardieu desire to join the citizens of Russia have expressed Brigitte Bordeaux and Xavier Faure, famous balloonist. "Ah, well, perhaps they will be able to live here? In unwashed Russia-after belle France! Chickens to laugh! "- The bay skeptics. And actually, why can not? That Russia has no advantages over the old world? We are also quite lovely — a kind.
