Yes. It’s true. Steven Seagal said that he may consider moving to Russia. The action movie star is a big fan of Vladimir Putin, apparently. As soon as you wipe your eyes clean of the tears you’ve undoubtedly shed at the thought of losing national treasure Seagal to Russia, you can read the more at Raw Story.
Do svidaniya, Steven!
Action movie star Steven Seagal said in an interview with the Moscow Times that he is in favor of Russia’s military action in Crimea and that he may someday emigrate to the former Soviet Union.
According to Atlantic magazine’s The Wire blog, Seagal called Putin “one of the great world leaders” and said he “would like to consider him as a brother.”
While the action star’s fortunes have faded somewhat in this hemisphere, in Russia, Seagal is still a huge star. Of late, he has befriended wealthy Russian oligarchs who have convinced him to support Putin’s aggression against Ukraine.
In an interview on the set of a movie he was filming in Romania, Seagal told Russian media that he backs Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “desire to protect the Russian-speaking people of Crimea, his assets, and the Russian Black Sea military base in Sevastopol…is very reasonable.”
