Putin grants Russian citizenship to U.S. actor Seagal

“Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed an order to give Russian citizenship to U.S. actor Steven Seagal, the Kremlin said on its website on Thursday. Commenting on the subject on a conference call with reporters, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Seagal has repeatedly asked for Russian citizenship. Seagal is famous for his ‘warm feelings towards Russia’ that he has never concealed, Peskov said. ‘At the same time, he is a rather well-known actor, which became the reason for granting him Russian Federation citizenship,’ Peskov said.”
