Stephen Segal offered his candidacy for the post of governor of Primorye

But he did not formally advance.

Actor Steven Seagal, who received Russian citizenship in 2016, said that he would like to become Governor of Primorsky Krai. He told about this at the international film festival of the Pacific Rim countries “Meridians of the Pacific”, which was held in Vladivostok.

I came specially to the film festival. Besides, on the paternal line my ancestors are from here. I want to study Primorsky Krai, see more. And to become your governor.

Officially, Segal did not put forward his candidacy. From the moment of receiving Russian citizenship, the actor managed to become an individual entrepreneur in Elektrostal and a special representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry for relations with the United States, take part in a crypto-currency project with signs of a “pyramid” and visit Putin’s inauguration in the forefront.

The statement of Segal, who claimed that his ancestors on the paternal line from Primorye, met with jokes. Head of the CEC Ella Pamfilova stressed that even in case of real nomination, the actor can be prevented by Russian laws – Sigal has US and Serbian citizenship.
