Hollywood star Steven Seagal pushed Kremlin propaganda on a trip this week to the Donbas region in eastern Ukraine, claiming that US-supplied HIMARS rockets caused the blast last month that killed more than 50 Ukrainian prisoners of war.

The “Under Siege” star, who was granted Russian citizenship in 2016 and supported Vladimir Putin’s annexation of Crimea, was seen in a video visiting Olenivka Prison — the site of the July 29 strike that left 53 jailed POWs dead and at least 75 others injured.

Speaking in English, Seagal called the slain prisoners of war “Nazis,” and suggested without any evidence that the site was destroyed on the orders of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to silence one of the inmates.

“The interesting thing is that one of the killed Nazis is a Nazi who just started talking a lot about Zelensky,” Seagal says in the video, “and that Zelensky is responsible for the orders about torture and other atrocities that violate not only the Geneva War Convention, but are also crimes against humanity.”
