MOSCOW, November 25. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has presented a brand new Russian passport to American actor Steven Seagal. The president pointed to the fact that they had discussed this opportunity a while ago. "We have agreed from the very beginning that we won’t politicize this matter," Putin added.

"I would like to congratulate you, and I also hope that this small step will mark the beginning of the gradual improvement in our interstate relations," Putin stated.
"The passport won’t be valid without your signature," Putin noted handing the passport over to Seagal. After that the actor signed the first page of his Russian passport.
