Steven Seagal, known for his films depicting counter-terrorism has been awarded a Russian citizenship by no less than Vladimir Putin himself early this month. This, along with Seagal’s close relationship with Putin has raised suspicions that the movie star could be spy feeding intelligence to Moscow in preparation for World War 3.
The suspicions began after Seagal began paying regular visits to Russia over recent years. The actor, an Aikido black belter, has also accompanied Putin to several martial arts lessons. He is also one of the most vocal defenders of the Russian president’s policies as well as a harsh critic of the US government.
Steven Seagal Has Insisted On Being Granted Citizenship?
His affiliation with Russia has led many to question his allegiance to the United States. Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters that for a long time, Seagal has insisted on being granted Russian citizenship.
“He is known for his warm feelings to our country, he never made a secret of it, and he’s also a well-known actor, which gave grounds to make him a Russian citizen,” said Peskov. However, some see the citizenship as an award from Putin. Possibly for giving Russia intelligence that might aid it during World War 3?
Seagal The Latest Foreign Celebrity To Receive Russian Citizenship
According to the Associated Press, Seagal is not alone. In recent years, many foreign celebrities have also been awarded citizenships by the Kremlin. These include French actor Gerard Depardieu and U.S. boxer Roy Jones Jr.
During a 2013 interview with RT, Seagal called Putin “one of the greatest world leaders if not the greatest world leader alive today”. “He cares more about Russia than anybody I know and he’s not afraid to stand up and do what needs to get done,” he added.
Aside from Russia, Seagal has also visited Belarus, another country in Eastern Europe and known ally of Moscow. More proof perhaps that the movie actor is a Russian agent providing World War 3 intelligence? Do you have any thoughts about “Casey Ryback” becoming a Russian citizen?
