She noted that she is moving to another interesting job, not related to the work of the deputy. Poklonskaya stressed that the refusal to participate in the elections should be regarded not as the end of a political career, but as a desire to get “another experience useful for further career.”
“Without movement and development, what good will I bring the country, the people? I want to be useful for the people, for our leadership and for Russia, ”the deputy said.
At the new place of work, Poklonskaya intends to focus on topics that interest people. Some of them will be the preservation of protected areas, ecology, accessibility of beaches, health care.
