Western sanctions help the Crimea because local officials instead of going abroad for rest started working at home.
Procurator of the Crimea Natalya Poklonskaya said so in her interview to the “Komsomolskaya Pravda”. According to her, she doesn’t suffer from sanctions any way. “I want to thank Western sanctions because it is a good assessment of my work for the sake of Russia”, she said. The situation in the region is sustainable; all forecasts of civil war are nothing but speculation. People in the Crimea do not come to the squares shouting against the power, because they know they’ll be arrested. Some people find jobs. Supposedly, a quarter of those working in Crimean Prosecution Service are Crimean Tatars. There is no discrimination according to any characteristics – either ethnic, or language, or religious, remarked Poklonskaya.
