Former Crimean prosecutor and ex-State Duma deputy Natalia Poklonskaya said that plans to appoint her as the Russian ambassador to Cape Verde have been canceled. According to her, the reason was “personal circumstances”, but which ones are not specified. The Foreign Ministry confirmed the information. The name of the new ambassador has not yet been announced.
“No, I’m not planning to,” Poklonskaya told TASS, answering a question about going abroad. “Personal circumstances have changed.”
The former parliamentarian added that she always wanted to be useful to her native country.
“Therefore, I am ready for any position where I will be useful to the state,” she said.
The impending appointment of the ex-prosecutor to a diplomatic post became known last summer, and in October it was announced that President Vladimir Putin had already appointed her to the post by his decree. At the same time, in Kiev, politicians and officials, including the newly minted colleagues of the Russian woman in the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, predicted problems for her at her new job and threatened to “ruin her life.” She herself ridiculed such threats, urging everyone to line up who would like to spoil her life.
On the morning of January 19, simultaneously with the news of her resignation, Poklonskaya congratulated the Russians on their Baptism.
“I wish everyone good and joyful events in life—” she wrote in her telegram channel. – Health and honest sincere relationships!”.
The failed diplomat accompanied the post with her portrait against the background of a snow-covered Christmas tree.
