Daily Bites (8/5/17) – Seagal Banned

Steven Seagal has been banned from entering Ukraine

American action star Steven Seagal has been banned from entering Ukraine after accepting Russian citizenship last year and voicing his support for Vladimir Putin’s annexation of Crimea, The Guardian reported. The five-year banishment of the “Under Siege” star was confirmed by Ukraine’s security service in a letter to the local news site Apostrophe that said the actor had “committed socially dangerous actions … that contradict the interests of maintaining Ukraine’s security.” In recent years, Ukraine has also barred outspoken French actor Gerard Depardieu and many Russian artists for similar reasons, the Guardian reported.
