PARIS, September 4. /TASS/. French screen star Gerard Depardieu announced plans on Friday to sell all his property in France and move to Belarus.

"I am sick and tired of France’s tax system. I don’t live in France but I keep paying taxes. I think I’ll now make the decision to sell all my property in this country, including my house and restaurants," Depardieu said in an interview with France’s TV Magazine weekly.

"I don’t want to be part of France any more though I love French people," the actor said. "I currently live in Italy but soon I’ll settle in Belarus, among peasants. This is a very beautiful country with a nice president," he added.

"I visit many countries but don’t stay anywhere for a long time," said Depardieu, granted Russian citizenship in 2013 and having an apartment in Grozny, Chechnya's capital.

"I don’t like what is becoming of Europe with its current rulers in France, Germany and Italy," the actor said.
