US Actor Steven Segal Appointed Russia's Special Envoy to the United States

He commented on Twitter her appointment as special representative of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation on issues of Russian-American cultural ties.

The "Above the Law" actor has previously praised President Putin as a "great world leader" and "brilliant tactician" and defended him against allegations of meddling in elections in the US. The actor is now, as the Russian Foreign Ministry put it, meant to "contribute to the further development of Russian-American relations in the humanitarian sphere, including interactions in the fields of culture, art, public and youth exchanges, among other things". "I hope we can strive for peace, harmony and positive results in the world", he added. "I take this honor very seriously", he wrote.

Russian Federation has appointed action movie star Steven Seagal as a special envoy for humanitarian ties with the United States.

The position is unpaid, said Russian officials, who compared the role to that of a United Nations goodwill ambassador - a distinguished volunteer who calls attention to the work of the UN.

Recall that Segal received Russian citizenship in the fall of 2016.

The countries have also been at odds over the Syrian civil war and the Russian annexation of Crimea.

As The Guardian noted in November 2016, Putin personally handed Seagal his Russian passport, congratulated the actor, and hailed the manouver as the beginning of normalization of the relations between Russia and the United States. "Despite the unfortunate propaganda going on I remain fully committed to working tirelessly towards this end and I am tremendously grateful for this opportunity", Seagal also told TASS.

Seagal feels "deeply humbled and honoured" to have been given his new position. "These are precisely the objectives of the Bitcoiin2Gen to empower the community by providing a decentralized P2P payment system with its own wallet, mining ecosystem, and robust blockchain platform without the need of any third party", read the press release announcing his appointment.
