More recently, Mr. Seagan received Russian citizenship in 2016 and was personally handed his Russian passport by President Vladimir Putin.

Action hero Steven Seagal has been appointed by Russian Federation as a special envoy for humanitarian ties with the US.

Steven Seagal is trading his martial arts training for diplomatic skills in his new role as the Russian Foreign Ministry's special representative to improve United States and Russian relations.

The Russian Foreign Ministry likened Seagal's new role to that of a United Nations goodwill ambassador and said that the actor, who is known for his martial arts prowess, would receive no salary. Trump and Seagal have both said over the years that the United States would greatly benefit from a strong relationship with Russian Federation. "I have worked tirelessly in this direction for many years unofficially and I am now very grateful for the opportunity to do the same thing officially".

He has previously hung out with Russia's Putin, a fellow martial arts fan.

The Russian foreign ministry has explained that the position is public and is not expected to be paid. Also that year, California Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher credited Seagal with facilitating meetings for a congressional delegation that visited Russian Federation in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings to investigate the suspects' backgrounds and discuss intelligence sharing issues.

Mr. Seagal, 66, did not immediately return a message seeking comment.

It is unclear how Seagal who was given Russian citizenship in 2016 will go about accomplishing that goal. Seagal once referred to Putin as "one of the great living world leaders".

Seagal, who occasionally appears on Russian state TV to talk about his views and career, was cited by Kremlin-backed TV station RT as welcoming the appointment. Seagal has said that it's "stupid" to think that Russian Federation or any other country has the technology to tamper with voting.
