Putin celebrated Victory Day, the day Nazi Germany surrendered in WWII, with a military parade through Red Square. While the United States refused to send any official presence to attend the festivities, Seagal, an American action star and Sheriff’s Deputy, was spotted in the crowd alongside Chinese President Xi Jinping.

“As we celebrate this sacred date today, we are once again made aware of the grandeur of the victory over Nazism…. Back then, in the nineteen-thirties, enlightened Europe failed immediately to see the deathly threat of Nazi ideology. Seventy years later, history calls on us to be aware and alert once again. We have seen an effort of creating a unipolar world, and we are seeing force-oriented thinking gain traction,” Putin told the crowd.

This is not the first time Seagal has traveled to Russia to support Putin. In 2013, Seagal was seen enjoying lunch with Putin and Putin’s spokesperson said that the two “have long been friends” and “regularly meet each other.” Putin even reportedly requested that Seagal be made an honorary consul of Russia in California and Arizona.
