US boxer Jeff Monson wants to hold Russian passport

Igor Lebedev, a member of the State Duma (Parliament) of the Russian Federation, a representative of the LDPR, said that US athlete Jeff Monson was hoping to obtain Russian citizenship in a simplified procedure.

Monson, who holds the title of the world champion in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, has been having a relationship with a woman of Russian origin for several years already. In the autumn of 2014, he announced his intention to obtain a Russian passport.

Monson is known for his love for Russia. For example, he goes to the ring to the anthems of the USSR and the Donbass and has a tattoo of Rodina-Mat monument on his leg.

Meeting in June 2015 with LDPR leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky, Monson asked his assistance in obtaining Russian citizenship.

Igor Lebedev said that the Liberal Democratic Party sent a letter to President Vladimir Putin, to the Ministry of Sports and discussed the issue with the administration of the Russian president.

Earlier, Russian media reported that President Vladimir Putin granted citizenship to another US-based boxer, Roy Jones. In Russia, Roy Jones, a winner of many prestigious titles, intends to train young boxers.
