Many may not be old enough to remember Steven Seagal, but he was the greatest actor of a generation, starring in all of the best films.
Even when he was marked for death…
He was hard to kill.
Now, he’s taking the fight to Russian polluters.
The Hollywood actor Steven Seagal, a long-time admirer of Russian president Vladimir Putin, has joined a pro-Kremlin party, the party said on Sunday.
Seagal received a membership card of an alliance named A Just Russia – Patriots – For Truth on Saturday, a video released by the party showed. It was formed earlier this year, when three leftist parties, all of which support Putin, merged.
Seagal, a Russian citizen since 2016, proposed a crackdown on 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 in his welcome speech.
In 2018, Russia tasked Seagal with improving humanitarian ties with the US at a time of deteriorating relations between the two countries.
Seagal visited Venezuela as a Russian representative earlier in May and presented a samurai sword to Venezuela’s president Nicolás Maduro.
Many may wonder, what punishment he wants for the polluters who escape arrest.
Well, probably – he’ll just hand them himself.
