URGENT OFFICIAL WORLDWIDE PRESS STATEMENT FROM STEVEN SEAGAL

Following recent press articles, Steven Seagal is outraged and disappointed that he has been misquoted in some Newspaper reports, Mr Seagal has issued the following statement:

“I have never said that President Putin was the ‘World’s Greatest Leader’, what I DID say was that President Putin was ONE of the World’s Great Leaders.

I have also never said that I intend to give up my American Citizenship. I love my country and I am a staunchly proud US Citizen, the suggestion that I would even consider leaving my beloved United States, for me. is personally very offensive.

I have served as a US Police officer for 25 years and put my life at risk on numerous occasions for my country, I hope that I can continue to do so for the next 25 years.

Any discussions I have had with the Russian President have been as a personal friend of mine and for the primary purpose of helping to create a situation where the US and Russia can become better friends and better allies.”
