U.S.-Russia links job for actor Seagal
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’.
