American actor Steven Seagal has said that he can get Russian citizenship in the future. He said this to journalists in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, reports “RIA Novosti”.
“I think the Russian nationality is somewhere on the horizon. I’d really like a few months a year to spend with your friends in Russia, with people who love me here and wait,” said Segal.
He noted that he likes Russia and its rich culture. Also, according to Segal, Sakhalin has a very good potential for business. “I was attracted by the location of Sakhalin, close to Japan”, — said the actor, who came to Sakhalin as a guest of the international film festival “on the Edge”, which takes place from 9 to 17 September.
In addition to the American citizenship Seagal has the citizenship of Serbia, which he received in January of this year. In March 2014, the actor has stated about the possibility of obtaining Russian citizenship. “In America, there is no prohibition to have citizenship of other countries. But I in any case did not intend to renounce U.S. citizenship, because I love my country and believe in it. Although against Russian citizenship, have nothing. Maybe someday it will happen,” said Segal, “the Russian newspaper”.
