Steven Seagal is defending Putin's actions in Crimea. The actor is best known for his action movies, but he has made a friend out of the Russian president. He even calls Vladimir Putin his 'brother.' Putin has received a lot of heat for his actions in Crimea. According to Huffington Post UK on March 27, Seagal has now spoken out in defense of the moves Putin has made in recent weeks. Seagal said the following:

[Putin's] desire to protect the Russian-speaking people of Crimea, his assets, and the Russian Black Sea military base in Sevastopol … is very reasonable.

The actor has also called Putin 'one of the greatest world leaders.' This is definitely an odd couple. A friendship has developed between the action star and the leader though. This is not the first time Seagal has made comments about Russia. He spoke about the country and Putin in another interview last year.

Seagal is currently filming a movie in Romania. The actor has remained in the spotlight in recent years, but these comments about the situation in Crimea and Putin have earned him new attention. Is it the type of attention he wants? Many were surprised by his words, and he even earned a mention on Fox News on Wednesday night for his defense of Putin.

What do you think of Seagal's comments?
