Steven Seagal Receives Russian Citizenship From His Friend Vladimir Putin
The US Embassy in Moscow does point out that American citizens traveling to Russia on a Russian passport can face difficulties at the border, but hopefully, Steven can impress any suspicious guards with his fine array of martial arts. The actor, who too has regards for Putin, describes him as "one of the greatest world leaders".
Putin issued the order on Thursday, while his spokesman, Dmitry Peskov said that citizenship was Seagal's idea.
The Russian official, Dmitry Peskov, said the fact that Seagal is a famous actor also was a major reason the president chose to award him citizenship. The announcement was made on Thursday with the authorities claiming that the actor is insistent on his desire to become a citizen of their country and has expressed warm feelings to it. Seagal, 64, has visited the country a lot over the years, accompanying Putin, who's a big fan of judo, into many martial arts events.
In the 1990s, the actor - who has Russian heritage - opened a branch of the restaurant chain Planet Hollywood in Moscow, and has since participated in a number of publicity campaigns for Russian companies.
Hollywood star Seagal and judo-loving Kremlin tough guy Putin have struck up a bromance in recent years, with Seagal visiting Russian Federation repeatedly and defending Moscow's 2014 annexation of Crimea from Ukraine.

In December previous year, Seagal told Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic and Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucix that he would do "everything possible to promote" the country around the world. In January, Serbia granted citizenship to the martial arts expert and actor after he offered to set up a school in Belgrade. The Serbian government invited Seagal to train its police forces aikido.
