Former French screen goddess Brigitte Bardot on Friday threatened to follow Gerard Depardieu in asking for a Russian passport, in protest not at tax hikes, but at the treatment of two circus elephants.
Far be it from me to doubt BB's sincerity for one minute, but perhaps she can also do something to highlight the apparent cruelty to animals in Russian circuses if she's going to be spending more time there.x9200 wrote:I think the reason stated in the paper is real. She is well known as a radical animal rights activist. I would rather expect she just exploited the political opportunity to solve the elephant case or acted purely emotional.
Come on - I know you're Russian and hence have a positive view but EVERYONE and his dog will be sticking their hand in his back pocket.... The only thing that might save him is his high profile.Sergei82 wrote:First of all, Russia is not Indonesia or Philippines. Bribes situation is not as bad there. Moreover, he is well-regarded there, he will be treated well. One thing though: his tax will be 30% if he spends less than 180 days a year in Russia. That is still way below 75%.
