(London Telegraph) On Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin granted Russian citizenship to Mr Depardieu – a popular figure in Russia who objected to the new tax on millionaires planned by France’s socialist government.

Mr Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the president would hold a private meeting with Mr Depardieu in the Black Sea resort of Sochi on Saturday evening.

“It is not ruled out that during this meeting Depardieu will be granted a passport,” he said.
