Putin lackey Steven Seagal inspects Russian ‘massacre’ jail where 50 Ukrainian PoWs were ‘burnt alive’ in mystery blast

HOLLYWOOD action star and defender of Vladimir Putin Steven Seagal has been pictured visiting a Ukrainian prisoner of war camp where 50 died in a recent explosion.

The actor, 70, was photographed looking through the bars of a prison where Ukrainians are being held by pro-Russian forces.

Appearing on the Telegram channel of Russian TV host and Putin propagandist Vladimir Solovyov, the US-born actor and martial artist was filmed visiting the camp where at least 50 Ukrainian inmates were killed last month.

Solovyov said Seagal “personally examined the evidence – including the pieces of American rockets – that confirm Kyiv’s links to the mass murder of their own soldiers”.

Seagal, who has long acted as Putin’s puppet and has Russian citizenship, was seen inspecting the Olenivka detention centre in the Donetsk region of Ukraine alongside Denis Pushilin, leader of the breakaway Donetsk People’s Republic.

Pushilin claimed Seagal was filming a documentary about the Ukraine war.

“Steven said that 98% of people who are talking about the conflict in media have never been here [in Donbas],” Pushilin wrote on Telegram.

He was pictured speaking to prisoners and surveying the damage to the camp, in one image examining shrapnel.

Solovyov added that Seagal “spoke with members of Ukrainian armed groups and asked them uncomfortable questions”.

Last month, the prison was the site of a deadly explosion that killed some 50 Ukrainian inmates, including prisoners of war who had surrendered back in May at the besieged Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol.

Kyiv has accused Moscow of massacring the inmates, and the United Nations is investigating the deaths as potential war crimes.

The prison camp, around 12 miles from the city of Donetsk, is said to house some 1,500 fighters from the Azovstal plant.

Ukraine claims that the PoWs were deliberately moved to Olenivka just before the attack, and says that chilling satellite images show what appear to be freshly-dug graves in the weeks leading up to the explosion.

The country’s president Volodymyr Zelensky has called the attack “a deliberate war crime by the Russians”.

Video shown on Russian state TV revealed charred bodies and twisted metal.

Russia for its part has denied the claims and accused Ukrainian forces of being responsible for the blast using a US-supplied rocket launcher.

But experts consulted by The Washington Post say that the evidence doesn’t support Moscow’s assertion that the explosion was caused by the Himars rocket launching system.
