Steven Seagal banned from Ukraine as national security threat


Steven Seagal is not "Above the Law" after all. Ukraine apparently considers the actor "A Dangerous Man," and the country has made an "Executive Decision" to ban him. Now Kiev wants him "Out of Reach," leaving Seagal ..."On Deadly Ground."

Ukraine's security service apparently thinks the action star has committed "socially dangerous actions ... that contradict the interests of maintaining Ukraine's security."

Vladimir Putin throughout the years

The ban probably stems from Seagal's cozy relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Seagal received Russian citizenship last year and supported the country's occupation of Crimea, a region claimed by Ukraine.
