Not everyone is against the unrecognized Donetsk People’s Republic, a segment of the Ukrainian population that wants to be part of Putin’s magical land of Russia. The pro-Russian separatists are likely behind the crash of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17, which was shot down with a surface-to-air missile in April.
Steven Seagal, who is both considering a run for Arizona Governor and moving to Russia because he hates Obama, played a weekend concert for those wonder, patriotic Putin-loving militants in the Ukraine. Appearing on a stage displaying the separatists’ black, blue, and red flag in the city of Stevastopol.
As Seagal performed, fans enthusiastically waved Russian and Donetsk Republic flags.
Seagal says that he considers Putin a friend and I’d like to consider him a brother.” According to a spokesman for the Russian President last year, the two are long-time friends and meet regularly.
According to Russian media, Seagal put on a Putin t-shirt given to him by the concert organizer.
As of March, Seagal has not ruled out seeking dual U.S.-Russian citizenship.
