We are living in troubled times, with the Cold War II at play (in case you weren’t aware, you’re in the middle of it) and apparently peacemakers like Presidents Trump and Putin are not enough to keep the agitators at bay.
Russia has appointed the US actor Steven Seagal as a special envoy to improve ties with the United States.
Seagal was granted Russian citizenship in 2016 and has praised President Putin as a great world leader.
The Russian foreign ministry made the announcement on its official Facebook page, saying the unpaid position was similar to that of a United Nations’ goodwill ambassador and Seagal would promote US-Russia relations “in the humanitarian sphere”.
What is needed between both superpowers is the instillation of some positive chi. I can think of no better man to sit in the middle.
