Seagal was asking for Russian citizenship "quite insistently and over a lengthy period", Kremlin spokesman Dmitriy Peskov told journalists.
The enduring bromance between Steven Seagal and the Russian President Vladimir Putin has been sealed after the American actor was granted Russian citizenship.

"He is known for his warm feelings to our country, he never made a secret of it".
President Putin signed a decree to make the award to the martial arts expert, who starred in Hollywood action thrillers during the 1990s.

"So I was immediately taken and impressed and sort of wanting to get to know this man deeper and deeper".
