SIMFEROPOL, January 12. /TASS/. Crimean Prosecutor Natalya Poklonskaya on Tuesday made her first public appearance in a ceremonial white jacket with general’s shoulder straps.
Poklonskaya, along with other officials of the prosecutor’s office, accepted congratulations on the occasion of the Prosecutor’s Office Workers’ Day.
"I wore a white jacket for the first time… It’s a great responsibility. I am proud of wearing it," she told TASS.
Poklonskaya was appointed to the post of Crimea’s prosecutor by the Russian president’s decree of May 2, 2014. In June 2015, she was given the class rank of the State Councilor of Justice, 3rd Class, which is equivalent to the military rank of Major General.
"I am proud of working in the Russian prosecutor’s office. I am proud of having the honor to work with such people. I am proud that I was appointed prosecutor of the Republic of Crimea in 2014. And I will do everything to strengthen our fair name of prosecutor," she said.
Poklonskaya is a native Crimean. She has been working in the prosecutor’s office system since 2012. She became specially popular after her first appearance in front of television cameras as acting prosecutor of the republic in March 2014. Internet videos from her first news conference have several million views.
