If it turns out that the deputy head of the State Duma committee on international affairs, ex-prosecutor of Crimea Natalia Poklonskaya has Ukrainian citizenship, then Ukraine can “ruin her life.” This was stated on the air of Ukraine 24 by the country’s foreign minister Dmytro Kuleba.
“So far, I’ve heard it all at the level of speculation. It is necessary to check whether she is still a citizen of Ukraine. If she retains Ukrainian citizenship, then we have the opportunity to ruin her life. But if she has already renounced the citizenship of Ukraine and is a citizen of the Russian Federation, then they can appoint anyone and anywhere there, ”said the head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry.
According to him, this whole story with Natalia Poklonskaya is “a very beautiful illustration of the fate of the traitors.”
“If you cheat on your own state, then the country that was betrayed by you, and in this case it is Russia, will simply use you and send you to Cape Verde. And I say this with all due respect to Cape Verde, ”added Kuleba.
“Commenting on gossip is an indicator of incontinence. It is better for a foreign minister to display qualities of a different nature. In terms of his words “ruin life”, this is what they have been doing in Kiev since 2014. All Ukrainian citizens do nothing but spoil their lives, “Poklonskaya replied to Kuleba’s statement in a commentary to RIA Novosti.
According to her, Kuleba is a literate person, but in his statement he allowed himself the lordly manners, they say, we will also check whose slave.
“With regard to his threat to ruin my life, there are a lot of such people, you can queue up in alphabetical order, preferably,” Poklonskaya said.
In her Telegram channel, the State Duma deputy added:
“It’s impossible to think of a better advertisement for Ukrainian citizenship:“ Do you still have Ukrainian citizenship? We have the ability to ruin your life ‟. Capaciously, exactly, officially. “
After the Crimean peninsula became part of Russia following the results of the referendum (96.77% of Crimean voters supported its accession to the Russian Federation), Natalia Poklonskaya was appointed the Crimean prosecutor. In 2016, she was elected to the State Duma of the Russian Federation. At the end of May, Poklonskaya announced the withdrawal of her candidacy from the United Russia primaries and her refusal to participate in the upcoming parliamentary elections due to her new job. In a video message on the Telegram channel, she intrigued the public, noting that after completing her career as a deputy, she intends to start a different kind of activity, the essence of which she did not specify, however, made it clear that she would “put on a jacket” again.
A version appeared in the media that Poklonskaya could be appointed Russian ambassador to the Republic of Cape Verde, located on the Cape Verde Islands.
“Don’t worry about Poklonskaya. She is a citizen of the Russian Federation. Her rights and freedoms will be protected from all attacks. And from such ministers too, ”State Duma Chairman Viacheslav Volodin stood up for Natalya Poklonskaya, stressing that Kuleba’s application should be considered by the ECHR.
