Amidst the political chaos happening in Crimea, one unexpected press conference has gone viral, turning Prosecutor Natalia Poklonskaya into an internet myth-meme of epic proportions:
Poklonskaya recently gave a no-nonsense press conference. “I tell the truth and I’m not afraid of this truth. I am no criminal…,” she’s quoted as saying. “Let them bring legal cases against me. I believe that justice will be done.” Tough talk.P
Yet, her press conference wasn’t subtitled in Japanese (or English, for that matter), leaving some online to concentrate on far more superficial things. One Japanese tweet, which simply read “Crimea’s New Attorney General oh oh oh…” and featured a link to her press conference was retweeted nearly ten thousand times.
