"I know one tradition - if I touch the shoes of a Ukrainian person they have to touch me back. I made the mistake when I was giving a hug to Mr Vladimir Putin, I touched his shoes and he touched my shoes back. So I touched him again. I thought it was a game and then I understood. A Ukrainian friend told me, 'Be careful, it's bad luck'. It was kind of funny." Jean-Claude Van Damme on his meeting with the Russian Prime Minister.
