Multiple women have accused Steven Seagal of sexual harassment, assault and rape, allegations he denies.
Russia governed Alaska and patches of the Pacific coast as a colonial power and Moscow wants the actor to highlight Moscow's "legacy."
Bitcoiin brand ambassador Steven Seagal was granted Russian citizenship by Putin in 2016.
The martial arts actor said frequent visits to Russia would suit him.
Seagal, a friend of Putin, has a "big creative palette," according to Nikita Mikhalkov.
