Gosh Darn it Anyway: Lucky Depardieu got Citizenship…

MOSCOW, January 3 (RIA Novosti) – Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree to grant legendary French actor Gerard Depardieu Russian citizenship, the Kremlin press office reported on Thursday.

“In accordance with clause “a” of article 89 of the Russian Constitution, the application for Russian citizenship by Gerard Xavier Depardieu born in France in 1948 has been granted,” the Kremlin press office said in a statement.

That is not fair and well I guess if I had made 170 films and won numerous awards, Putin would give me a citizenship also…

Oh well easy come easy go…

Oh! Also here is article 89:

Article 89
The President of the Russian Federation shall:
a) solve the issues of citizenship of the Russian Federation and of granting political asylum;
b) decorate with state awards of the Russian Federation, award honorary titles of the Russian Federation, higher military and higher special ranks;
c) decide on pardoning.

Hmm, now my brain is working…
