US actor, Steven Seagal, has said that it was a great honor for him to be in the Kremlin at a personal meeting with the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, to receive his Russian passport.
“Spasibo bolshoe [Thank you very much],” Steven Seagal said in Russian after signing the passport.
Seagal has now joined the likes of famous US citizens to be granted Russian citizenship, namely boxer Roy Jones and mixed-martial artist Jeff Monson.
