Russian Federation names action-movie star Seagal as envoy for US

The Foreign Ministry announced the move on its Facebook page, saying Seagal's portfolio in the unpaid position would be to "facilitate relations between Russian Federation and the United States in the humanitarian field, including cooperation in culture, arts, public and youth exchanges".

President Putin is also a fan of the kind of martial arts that Seagal often practiced in his Hollywood action movies.

This will cover "culture, art, public and youth exchanges, among other things", the Russian Foreign Ministry said on its Facebook page.

President Vladimir Putin presented a Russian passport to US actor Steven Seagal in 2016, saying he hoped it would serve as a symbol of how fractious ties between Moscow and Washington were starting to improve.

"Steven Seagal was appointed as the Russian Foreign Ministry's special representative for Russian-US humanitarian ties", the ministry said.

Born in the United States, actor Steven Seagal was granted Russian citizenship in November 2016. His movies, including such titles as "Under Siege" and "Sniper: Special Ops", are popular with Russian audiences. He has praised Putin's annexation of Crimea, for example, and last year, Kiev banned him from entering Ukraine for five years, claiming he "committed socially unsafe actions" that could threaten its security.

The 66-year-old actor was born in Lansing, the capital city of U.S. state of MI.
