The diplomat also thanked the colleagues with whom she worked for the last 5 and a half years and stressed that no one gave the team instructions, did not force them to work, and the result was achieved due to everyone's indifference.

As we reported earlier, Zerkal claimed her intentions to leave the office - something she has been planning for a while. The diplomat said so in a show at Channel 24.

"This week, I will fulfill my final task, I'll hold the hearing in the Hague under the new arbitrary case, which concerns our ships detained last year and held in Russia, and our sailors. And that's it, like I said", Zerkal said.

She said she wanted to "take a break" and named some other reasons for such a decision. When asked if she wanted to stay in the Foreign Ministry, as part of the system that would resist Russian aggression.
