Prominent actor, film producer and musician Steven Seagal has been appointed Special Representative for Russia-US Cultural Links, Cultural and Historical Heritage in a voluntary capacity. The special representative will perform his duties without any financial remuneration and for the purpose of strengthening direct contacts, mutual understanding and trust between the Russian and American peoples.

It is expected that in his new role, Steven Seagal will assist in the development and implementation of various projects for bilateral cooperation in the field of culture, arts, science, education, sports, public and youth exchanges, as well as participate in respective events in Russia and abroad, and maintain contacts with partners in the United States. Moreover, the special representative will be involved in the preservation of memorial sites in the US that are somehow connected with Russia, research into and the promotion of the Russian America legacy and other chapters of our common history that are of great interest for both nations.

We appreciate Mr Seagal’s willingness to use his experience and authority for promotion of the Russia-US public, cultural and humanitarian links as well as for building a more positive atmosphere in bilateral affairs. We wish him every success in this capacity.
