Russians on Gerard Depardieu: 'Now we have such a fine specimen of a man'

Russian president Vladimir Putin has granted Russian citizenship to French actor Gerard Depardieu.

Mr Depardieu recently announced he would give up his French passport after the government criticised his decision to move abroad to avoid higher taxes.

Muscovites were asked what they thought of their new compatriot.
