Putin Appoints Steven Seagal To Strengthen US-Russia Ties

The Russian Foreign Ministry announced on Saturday that Hollywood action star Steven Seagal would be the country's new representative for Russian-US humanitarian ties, according to Reuters

The role was designed to "deepen cultural, art and youth ties" between the two nuclear superpowers. 

The Russian Foreign Ministry likened Seagal’s new role to that of a U.N. goodwill ambassador and said that the actor, who is known for his martial arts prowess, would receive no salary.

“It’s a case of people’s diplomacy intersecting with traditional diplomacy,” the ministry said. -Reuters

US-Russia relations have been under seige since Russian President Vladimir Putin made the executive decision to annex Crimea in 2014 - stoking tensions with the West, which claims the Russian president acted above the law. 

Out for justice, the US and others imposed harsh sanctions against Russia, while the Ukrainian army has found itself on deadly ground facing off with Russian forces throughout the disputed region.

Last year, Seagal was banned from entering Ukraine for five years, after the Ukrainian security service (BSU) deemed him a security threat and placed him on a blacklist. No word if he was marked for death by an attack force, or if they just don't like a guy who was born to raise hell. We're sure he would have received the maximum conviction had he set foot in the country, but for now he remains out of reach and hard to kill. 

Apart from a black belt, I have a black list now,” -Steven Seagal

In 2016, Putin presented Seagal with a Russian passport - while apparently finding something humorous during the ceremony, an exchange which was clearly a big moment for Seagal. 

Seagal - a frequent guest on Russian state TV and a regular visitor to the country for over a decade, was cited by RT as welcoming the appointment: 

“I’ve always had a very strong desire to do all I can to help improve Russian-American relations,” RT cited Seagal as saying. “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.”

Seagal's films are popular with Russian audiences. We can just imagine Putin cozying up to Under Seige with a big vat of popcorn, wondering with the rest of us how Seagal who is more than "just a cook," didn't win a single award for his performace:

If you ever watched his movie "I Patriot" you can see where Hollyweird Jews ripped off the story about the Ohio Militia at the Freeman standoff, inserted some bullshit about anthrax, stole our lines about Native Americans spirituality, omitted the standoff and made a crappy-ass movie based loosely upon the book: "The Turning Point A Personal Account of the Freeman Standoff" written by the Militia's lawyer.  Seagal isn't the bad guy, but they were in such a damn hurry to get the movie out, it sucked and his fans hated it, although, his fans are seemingly very loyal.

Edit: If you're interested in the book, it's currently out of print.  However, I heard it's coming back and should be a downloadable e-book before the year's out.

Putin tried to think like an American.

And Americans think that actors are the real deal.... they play a part... and become that part...

And why do actors think they can become politicians????

WTF???!!! WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND???

THEY ACT! FROM A SCRIP WRITTEN BY A GUY THAT HAS ALCOHOL AND DRUGS PROBLEMS!

 

AND THEY GET AS MANY TAKES AS IT NEEDS TO GET IT RIGHT!! THAT'S NOT EXACTLY LIFE!!!

You are not getting it. At the end of the video it clearly shows his fingernails have huge lines that are a sign of vitamin deficiency. These lines can be traced back to when the tough guy was handled. This is a timeline starting with the origin date of the video. Nice Black hair, while Putin wears his natural comfortably. What was he, a Lousiana cop on TV?

Putin didn't annex Crimea. Crimea was Russian.  Kruschev merged Crimea with Ukarain in an attempt to dilute the power if Nazi allied fascist Ukaranians.  When US CiA disenfranchised pro Russian duly elected president... Crimea said "enough" we are Russian. Read PCR and history.  That would be the same Paul Craig Roberts on this same site.

Russian and Shia oil bad for EU.

Sunni Saudivoil good. 

Must finish Cheney's pipeline.
