Russia: Hollywood actor Steven Seagal joins pro-Kremlin party

The US actor, a longtime admirer of Russian President Vladimir Putin, says he wants to crack down on businesses that harm the environment.

Vladimir Putin gave Steven Seagal Russian citizenship in 2016

Hollywood actor Steven Seagal has joined the political party Just Russia, his spokesman said. 

The party was established earlier this year with the merger of three leftist parties. The Just Russia alliance controls a faction in the Russian parliament and plans to take part in parliamentary elections in September.

Seagal, best known for action films such as “Above the Law” and “Hard to Kill” has been a Russian citizen since 2016. He still holds US citizenship.

What are his political goals?

Speaking at a party ceremony on Saturday, the 69-year-old actor and martial artist said he wanted to take action against businesses that damage the environment.

“Without being able to arrest people, when we just fine them, they are probably making more money off the production of the things that are defiling the environment,” he said.

Seagal also posed for photos with Russian writer Zakhar Prilepin, one of the party’s leaders. Prilepin is known for joining the pro-Russian separatists fighting against government forces in eastern Ukraine. The conflict, which broke out in 2014 after Russia’s annexation of Crimea, has killed 14,000 people.

    This nazi bilge rat is even thicker than originally thought. What a loathsome fat putinoid creep.

      • Like all the official opposition parties in putlerstan, they are in fact putler-grovelers, like the commies and Zhirinovsky’s laughably named Liberal Democrats. Seagal is a vile far left bastard who uses putler’s shit for toothpaste. Rather like that other shit weasel Oliver Stone. I’d string them both up.

          • Doesn’t that fit the profile for this degenerate exactly?
            Re Serbia, Radovan Karadzik for some insane reason has been moved to a prison on the Isle of Wight to serve out his time. He, like Slobodan Milosevic, is a putler man of course. I read that the prick murdered 8000 Muslim men and boys.
            Well putler has murdered hundreds of thousands of innocent Muslims in Syria, Chechnya and Ukraine. He has also murdered way, way more innocent Christians in Europe this century than the combined efforts efforts of AQ/isis. Yet the poisonous little nazi toad has not even been indicted for these terrible crimes, not to mention rape, torture, thieving and propaganda blitzing. On an almost daily basis, a Ukrainian soldier, medic or child is murdered by putinazi snipers or land mines. And on their own land too. Intolerable.
