KARLOVY VARY, May 8. /TASS/. Gerrit Reindsen from the Netherlands who has asked President Vladimir Putin to grant him the Russian citizenship said on Friday he wants to live in the Urals region.
"If I move to Russia, I'd like to live in the Urals," Reindsen told TASS.
Reindsen's wife who runs a hotel in Karlovy Vary, a spa town in the Czech Republic, was born in Yekaterinburg, the largest city in the Urals.
"But I don't want to live in Yekaterinburg due to its traffic jams," he said. "If I fail to get the citizenship, I'd like to set up a club of Russia's friends in Europe. Anyway, I love your country very much."
Reindsen said he had received many letters of support for his plans to get a Russian passport. He said he was advised to send a request to the Russian embassy.
"I understand and speak Russian a little," Reindsen said earlier in his address to Putin. "I follow the developments in Russia and the world online and on the Russian TV. Then I read and watch European news and see that they are telling lies and do not report many things. This is not just sad but outrageous. But the American government's behavior regarding Ukraine is the most outrageous."
Reindsen, a former architect, currently runs an international delivery service.
