It also yields: a general-purpose programming language and Kotlin also supports procedural programming with the use of functions.

I don't mind that Kotlin targets the JVM. In fact that's what I need it for, Android development.

I just need Kotlin to give me access to the Android API in the form of functions that operate on some objects (data) and let me design the inner workings of my program in procedural way.

Is that impossible by design, given that Kotlin has equal rights as Java on the JVM and supports procedural programming?

Greetings
