Poklonskaya appeared in the political horizon during the so-called. “Crimean Spring”. However, in the future, her sometimes extravagant behavior and lack of flexibility prevented her from political activities. Her current appointment was regarded by many as a break from big politics, as well as an opportunity to learn the art of diplomacy.
Such reasoning stems from ignorance of the continent and misunderstanding of a long-established fact: Africa is the strategic direction of Russia’s foreign policy.
Part of the Russian elite continues to build an alternate airfield for themselves in European countries. However, another part of it (conditional “soil men” and “siloviki”) prefer to choose less obvious directions. We are talking about the developed countries of Africa, where the peace and well-being of the top players of the Russian league is not threatened by any sanctions – the “Magnitsky laws”, “Pandora’s archives”, etc.
According to rumors, in recent years, the Cape Verde Islands have attracted the attention of the Russian bourgeoisie, which is actively buying real estate and investing in the country. Among the interested parties the name of Igor Sechin sounds. In this context, the appointment of Poklonskaya should be viewed as a gesture of special trust and involvement in Russian foreign policy trends and in the interests of the Russian elite.
PS The Russian Foreign Ministry, after Ukraine’s threats against the ambassador-appointed Poklonskaya, recalled that she has diplomatic immunity, which means that her abduction (or attempt) could lead to serious consequences. It’s not for you guys to kidnap a judge from Moldova …
