MOSCOW, September 14. /TASS/. Crimea head Sergey Aksenov has invited celebrities from around the world to come to Russia’s Black Sea Peninsula saying he would welcome the creation there of a counterpart to the US iconic Beverly Hills, the Izvestia newspaper has reported.
"If honoured stars wish to settle in Crimea they are absolutely welcome," Aksenov said in his open address both in Russian and in English. "We shall encourage the new Beverly Hills uprise in Crimea eventually."
Aksenov said the representatives of show business, athletes, actors and other celebrities will face no administrative or other barriers if they decide to buy any real estate on the peninsula, move for permanent residence or come for vacation.
"We will eagerly provide assistance to scope out convenient places on the coast, either among mountains, or unique woods or prairies - in any case in the midst of great nature and marvelous climate," the address reads.
The Crimean leader noted that the growing number of celebrities have expressed their wish to obtain Russian citizenship. Among them are famed US boxer Roy Jones, Limp Bizkit's leader Fred Durst and Samy Naceri, a French actor known for his roles in the Taxi movie.
French actor Gerard Depardieu also earlier received a Russian passport.
