Vladmir Putin dined with Steven Seagal before judo match, because why not?

Russian dictator president Vladmir Putin had lunch with (former) action movie star Steven Seagal before attending a judo competition in Moscow Wednesday, because of course that happened.

According to Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov, “Putin and Seagal have long been friends, and they regularly meet each other.”

Peskov told Russian journalists that Seagal was in Moscow “on business.” What type of “business” the two are conducting is anyone’s guess.

Seagal and Putin were photographed at a mixed martial arts competition in Russia last August, so maybe it’s not that weird that they hang out?

Just last week, another beloved American treasure Dennis Rodman visited oppressive dictator Kim Jong-Un in North Korea for some basketball and laughter.
