Apparently, he has a close friendship with Putin, whom he calls “one of the world’s greatest leaders.”. It has been a long time. In 2014, when he gave a concert for pro-Russian separatists in the Crimea, in Sevastopol, government envoys appeared next to the actor on stage during a publicity event, where they praised their supporters who were facing the “Kyiv regime”. When asked by reporters why he decided to take part in the event, he replied that he wanted his music… “connecting people”.

In 2016, the dictator granted Russian citizenship (Seagal also has a Serb in addition to the American), and repaid him with official support for the annexation of Crimea Ukraine considered him persona non grata at the timeLocal circles accused him of “activities in a terrorist organization and financing terrorism.”

In an interview with RIA Novosti Russian news agency controlled by the government Seagal said he would not give up Putin’s citizenship.

“Firstly, I will never give up my Russian passport. Second, I face russophobia every day.”

Not exactly what he meant, said the actor.

In 2018, Russia appointed Seagal a special envoy to improve relations with the United States. In 2021, he received the membership card of the pro-Russian Fair Russia Party – for the truth.

Since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, he has strengthened his support for Putin, stressing in one of his recent interviews that the “external entity” is responsible for the attitude of the two countries towards each other.
