Steven Seagal visits Belarusian president, receives carrot & watermelons (VIDEO)
Seagal was invited to Lukashenko’s country home in Ozerny, north of Minsk, on Thursday and obviously feeling a little peckish, made short work of a freshly peeled carrot Lukashenko handed to him.
"Here you are: eat it for your health, it's very good for you," said Lukashenko.
Seagal also raised a few chuckles after being gifted with two watermelons, which he proceeded to hold in front of his chest.

This was the first time Seagal met Lukashenko, but according to presidential spokeswoman Natalya Eismont, Seagal “had long wanted to meet Lukashenko.”
Following the exchanging of gifts, Seagal attended a meal with his new presidential confidant.
Lukashenko, who won his fifth term as president in October 2015, may have been thankful the visit went so smoothly and he didn’t find himself “Under Siege” from Seagal’s famous martial arts moves.
It is understood Seagal was visiting Belarus to meet with Wargaming, the developers behind the popular World of Tanks video game.
Seagal follows in the footsteps of French actor Gerard Depardieu who visited Lukashenko’s residence in 2015. Unlike Seagal though, Lukashenko treated Depardieu to a lesson in hand scything.
