MOSCOW, December 23. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has admitted being terribly afraid of war. She also said her work made her at times professionally happy but at other times made her feel wasted.
"I am terribly afraid of any war," she told Dozhd television on Wednesday. "I had a grandma whom I loved very much and I believe she also loved me. When I complained about something, she used to say - the main thing is not to have a war. All the rest is remediable,"Zakharova said.
Zakharova said she applied this approach to her profession. "Despite satisfaction that work brings, I would give a lot not to see some topics at all, to see us living in peace, cooperating. Nobody would know us and we would have fiftyfold less telephone calls," she said.
Work is not all about pleasant moments, she continued. "Sometimes you feel that you have done things proficiently, but sometimes you feel you have not outworked, you failed. This is a many-sided story, not an aggregate picture but a puzzle with many overtones of many colors," the spokeswoman added.
She said that receiving the diplomatic rank of minister extraordinary and plenipotentiary of the second class gave her no privileges, and was just a customary event. Zakharova also said the title was bestowed by President Vladimir Putin because the three highest diplomatic ranks were conferred only by the president, while the others - by the foreign ministry.
