"Hercules" star Kevin Sorbo used a Russian publicist to get face time with lots of rich Russian investors ... and then stiffed her, so now she's suing.

Sophie Bardo says Sorbo hired her to organize a tour of Russia in December 2013, and says she arranged meetings, interviews and public appearances for him ... according to court docs obtained by TMZ.

Bardo -- publicist by trade, Russian by descent -- says the purpose of the trip was to promote Sorbo's image in Russia and find financial backers for his TV shows and movies.

Bardo claims Sorbo has refused to pay her -- even though she's been doing this kind of work for him since 2009. That's a lotta rubles.

No word back from Sorbo's camp.

The first Clue you were going to get STIFFED? When he needs Wealthy Russians to Finance his Lame Entertainment Projects that American Investors had no Problem Passing up.

title is a little odd.. not sure that cheapnik/frugal is the same as breach of contract/skipping on the bill... unless that's how the tmz people see the world
