Steven Seagal vists Belarus dictator, gifted watermelons and raw carrot
Though Steven Seagal once made a career out of martial arts based action movies, his recent claim to fame is bizarre cameo appearances alongside controversial world leaders and even MMA fighters. From Russian president Vladimir Putin to former UFC champion Anderson Silva, Seagal’s exploits are topics of conversation for longtime fans, as well as sports and politics pundits.
Seagal’s latest venture was to Minsk, where he stayed in the home of Belarusian president Alexander Lukashenko. The controversial ruler, labeled the “last dictator in Europe,” gifted the actor with two watermelons and a carrot during an excursion into the gardens.
“Eat, this is very good for your health.” said Lukashenko as he handed Seagal a carrot he peeled himself. [link to www.bloodyelbow.com]
