Recent weeks have placed Ukraine in the limelight as its southern region, Crimea, is seized by Russian troops. However, the spotlight in Japan has been turned to a specific person in the past days, not solely based on her position of influence, but because of her good looks.
Newly appointed attorney-general for Crimea, Natalia Poklonskaya, has captured not just the residents of Crimea and Russia, but Asians as well. The 33-year old blonde Poklonskaya turned heads at a press conference held by the pro-Russian Crimean government of Prime Minister Sergey Aksyonov to talk about the fatal shooting of a Ukrainian soldier. The soldier was shot in the Crimean capital of Simferopol by a “self-defense forces” member supported by the Russians. The incident was the first military casualty since the violent standoff between the two nations, which saw Russia take control of Crimea.
The video of the press conference showing Poklonskaya was an arrow shot to the hearts of many Japanese, Chinese and South Korean men. And as the Japanese go, fan art soon followed the video, showing their tribute to the beautiful attorney-general. Manga and anime versions of her poised beauty in the video soon made the rounds on social media, shifting attention from the crisis she’s dealing with to her beauty.
