U.S.-Rus­sia links job for ac­tor Sea­gal

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

AC­TOR Steven Sea­gal’s new role will cover U.SRus­sian hu­man­i­tar­ian ties, it’s been re­vealed.

Hol­ly­wood star Sea­gal, 66, was ap­pointed a ‘spe­cial rep­re­sen­ta­tive’ for Rus­sia on Satur­day in an an­nounce­ment on the coun­try’s Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs’ Face­book page.

The job will be sim­i­lar to one of the good­will am­bas­sador po­si­tions given by the United Na­tions.

Ac­cord­ing to the Rus­sian state­ment, Sea­gal will be asked to pro­mote re­la­tions with the United States “in the hu­man­i­tar­ian sphere”.

Sea­gal first be­came a Rus­sian cit­i­zen in 2016 and has been a very close friend of Vladimir Putin, 65, since then, even at­tend­ing the Rus­sian leader’s swear­ing-in cer­e­mony a cou­ple months ago in Moscow.

In the past, Sea­gal has heaped lots of praise upon the Rus­sian dic­ta­tor and called him “a great world leader” and “a bril­liant tac­ti­cian”. ‘LISA’ is Rus­sian for ‘fox’.
