The State Duma Foreign Affairs Committee may soon consider approving Poklonskaya‘s candidacy as an ambassador, the documents for that are ready, the interlocutor stated.
According to the source, due to her unsystematic behavior and extravagant statements, neither the presidential administration, nor United Russia, nor the leaders of the annexed Crimea, from which she was elected, want to see Poklonskaya on the next convocation.
Earlier, Poklonskaya expressed a wish to become the Russian ambassador to Ukraine. She said that she loves Ukraine and is "ready to take risks" if it will bring peace.
It should be noted that Russian president appoints ambassadors upon agreement with both houses of parliament. Candidates for the office of ambassadors are considered by the profile committees of the State Duma and the Federation Council.
As it was reported earlier, the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine completed a pre-trial investigation into criminal proceedings against former high-ranking officials of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea on the facts of treason in April of 2018. Natalia Poklonskaya, Sergey Aksyonov, Vladimir Konstantinov and other former high-ranking officials of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea are involved in criminal cases.
It was established that these persons created and participated in activities of a criminal organization with the aim of forcibly overthrowing the constitutional order and changing the borders of Ukraine contrary to the established procedure during February and March 2014, while in the territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.
The Kyiv Court of Appeal has allowed the Prosecutor General's Office to investigate in absentia State Duma deputy Natalia Poklonskaya.
