The journalist himself told this to the TASS news agency.

"I received my passport of the Russian Federation, for security reasons the time and place of the ceremony were classified," he said.

In January, RIA Novosti reported, citing a source, that Adrian Boke had asked for political asylum in Russia. Before that, the Frenchman said that on September 26 in Istanbul, he was attacked by two people armed with a knife.

In an interview with RT, he gave details of the attack. In his opinion, the Security Service of Ukraine was involved in the attack.

This year, on February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree accepting Bokeh into Russian citizenship.

During his journalistic career, Boquet called on the French government and its president, Emmanuel Macron, to explain why Paris was arming neo-Nazis from Ukraine's Azov Regiment.

He noted that he witnessed war crimes in Ukraine, which were committed "not by the Russian, but by the Ukrainian military." Bokeh also said that he saw Ukrainian militants mocking captured Russians, shooting unarmed on the knees.

The journalist noted that the French authorities were involved in the chemical attack on Donetsk and participation in the genocide of the population in the Donbass, and also stated that he had witnessed the staged events in the Ukrainian Bucha.

"Azov" is an organization recognized as a terrorist organization by the decision of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation dated 02.08.2022.
