h/t Breitbart – Steven Seagal is emerging as a clear favourite for most woke Hollywood climate celebrity ever, after joining a Russian pro-Putin left wing environmental activist party, whose leaders include ultra-nationalist Russian paramilitary Zakhar Prilepin.

Hollywood actor Steven Seagal, a long-time admirer of Russian President Vladimir Putin, has joined a pro-Kremlin party, the the party said on Sunday.

Seagal received a party membership card of an alliance named Just Russia – Patriots – For Truth on Saturday, a video relased by the party showed. It was formed earlier this year, when three leftist parties, all of which support Putin, merged into one.

Seagal, a Russian citizen since 2016, proposed a crackdown on businesses which damage the environment.

Seagal has some stiff competition; Sean Penn initially stole the lead with his fawning El Chappo interview, though rumours have persisted that El Chappo’s meeting with Penn may have contributed to his capture. But Seagal hanging out with Putin, demanding harsh penalties against businesses which “defile” the environment is going to be a tough act to beat.
