Steven Seagal is a longtime friend of President Vladimir Putin. Seagal received Russian citizenship in 2016. The passport was handed to him personally by Putin. In May 2018, the actor was among the guests invited to Putin’s inauguration, and in August 2018 he was appointed special representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry for Russian-American humanitarian ties.
At the end of February this year, Putin awarded him the Order of Friendship. The decree says that the award was given “for a great contribution to the development of international cultural and humanitarian cooperation.”
In the summer of 2015, Seagal visited Sevastopol, annexed by Russia, along with members of the Night Wolves biker club. The head of the club, Alexander Zaldostanov, then presented Seagal with a statuette of a Russian soldier and one of the T-shirts with Putin. “I’m Russian,” Seagal said in response. In August 2022, Steven Seagal visited the so-called “DNR”, including the colony in Yelenovka, part of which was destroyed by explosions on the night of July 29. As a result, at least 53 of the 193 Ukrainian prisoners of war held there were killed.
Segal was born in Michigan, but made a career in Hollywood, positioning himself as a martial artist and the first foreigner to be recognized as an aikido master in Japan. In the 1980s, he was the star of several successful action films: “Above the Law” (1987) – in the countries of the former USSR and Eastern Europe, he was shown in video salons under the name “Nico”, “Hard to Kill”, “Marked for Death” and “Under Siege” (Under Siege, 1992). In the latter, he played a military chef defeating terrorists who were trying to take over the battleship Missouri with a nuclear weapon on board. Since Under Siege, Seagal has released more than a dozen films, but they have mostly not been shown in theaters or have done little at the box office.
