Poklonskaya urged to give people the opportunity to freely express their opinions and share their feelings about the situation in Ukraine, not to create blacklists and not to organize a witch hunt
In the current situation, don't tag people as 'our'. and «alien» depending on the position they share, said Natalya Poklonskaya, deputy head of Rossotrudnichestvo, on the St. Petersburg TV channel.
Poklonskaya warned the authorities of both countries against persecuting people for expressing their position on the current situation. She compared what was happening to a witch hunt, which could not end “with nothing good.” As an example, she cited cases of sanctions against individual artists for disagreeing with the course of the authorities or the position of cultural institutions.
“This does not mean that he automatically became a traitor to his homeland, a traitor to Russia. This is wrong, — Poklonskaya said. It is important to preserve the right of people to express their opinions and feelings, the politician emphasized.
At the end of the interview, Poklonskaya was asked if she was ready to go to Ukraine after the end of hostilities to help with the restoration of infrastructure. The deputy head of Rossotrudnichestvo ruled out such a possibility and called it a provocation. At the same time, she added that she was ready to become a Russian goodwill ambassador.
Earlier, Poklonskaya in her Telegram channel called for “break away from the policy of hatred and enmity — up to a showdown about the correct belonging to an ethnic origin.».
In early March, Poklonskaya visited the Kherson region of Ukraine and brought humanitarian aid to local residents. The cargo included medicines, food and other essentials. Then she said that those who accepted help faced “persecution”, up to arson of their houses.
On April 1, State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin suggested that the heads of budgetary organizations who criticize the state for the military operation in Ukraine resign. According to Volodin, doing this “in relation to our soldiers and officers defending the country” is vile. Volodin promised to “be sure to ask the ministers and insist on personnel decisions.”
