Yes, Steven Seagal was born in Lansing and lived here in Michigan until his family moved to California when he was five. Don't start proudly tweeting that to your friends until you hear what he did this weekend.

This weekend, Steven played a concert, with his blues band, for the pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine. According to the Guardian, he was at a biker show, in Sevastopol, in the Crimean peninsula. And he was on a stage with the new flag of the pro-Russian rebels behind him. Yeah, the guys who shot down the Malaysian airliner (the second one, just so we're straight)

Russian media reports say, during the concert, Steven put on a Putin t-shirt. He's been quoted as saying that he considers Putin, "a friend and I'd like to consider him a brother".
