Depardieu: Want to live in Belarus, President is nice there

Famous French actor Gérard Depardieu wants to sell all of his property in France, as he claimed in an interview to Le Figaro TV Magazine.

"I think that I'm going to sell everything in France. I no longer want to be part of this country, even if I like the French. Apart from journalists who are in the government's pay," Depardieu said.

Depardieu currently resides in Italy, but he is going to move to Belarus to live "among peasants, as it is beautiful there and the President is nice".

The actor also noted that he does not like the prospects Europe faces. "With people in power in France, Italy, Germany... I do not like it! And besides, Europe does not like itself. There are problems with the migrants, farmers... I do not like the contempt of these politicians. Either left, or right."

Pravda.Ru reported that the French actor became a Russian citizen in 2013.
