Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed an executive order granting Russian citizenship to actor Steven Seagal. The action star has visited Russia regularly over the last few years, and praised Putin’s policies. A Kremlin spokesman said Seagal “has been insistent for a long time” in asking to become a citizen.
“He is known for his warm feelings to our country, he never made a secret of it, and he’s also a well-known actor, which gave grounds to make him a Russian citizen.”
