Let’s see what this move does for his image, shall we?

Newsweek has the details.

He attended Moscow’s May 9 military parade in the absence of any U.S. government representatives, he has danced with Chechnya’s President Ramzan Kadyrov and hinted he is looking to become a Russian citizen earlier this year, when visiting Russia’s far east.

Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the decision to grant Seagal citizenship was after the actor “requested it with enough insistence and continued to request that we grant him citizenship.”

Speaking at a press conference, Peskov added that Seagal is renowned for “his warm feelings towards our country,” state news agency Itar-Tass.
