Russian Citizenship!?

Yup, a decree appearing on the Kremlin website yesterday  states “Vladimir Putin signed an executive order according Russian citizenship to Steven Seagal”.  That’s right, Steven Seagal.

The Guardian reported that there hasn’t been any big presentation shenanigans, but there was a statement from Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov:

“It was his wish; he really was asking for citizenship persistently and for quite a long time… He is known for his warm feelings to our country, which he has never hidden.”

So, I guess it’s potato chips and red wine over at Gérard Depardieu’s to celebrate.  Hurrah!
