Actor Seagal performs in Crimea

American actor Steven Seagal has reportedly performed at a concert in the breakaway region of Crimea on a stage decorated with the flag of pro-Russian separatists fighting in eastern Ukraine.
Seagal, who knows Russian president Vladimir Putin, apparently performed in the Black Sea port city of Sevastopol at a concert organised by a motorcycle gang of Russian nationalists known as the Night Wolves. Russia annexed the Ukrainian region in March.
Reports claim that Seagal was then handed a shirt with Putin's face on it, which he held aloft as he thanked the crowd.
Fighting in eastern Ukraine continues to rage while Ukrainian officials demand that the insurgents surrender.
