This is the new foreign minister to be of a self-proclaimed Republic in Ukraine flaunting her diplomatic credentials in a most unusual way. In fact flaunting her unique ministerial style in a series of sexy photos on social networking sites seems to be almost the norm for Irina Filatova. She has been appointed the designated foreign minister of the Lugansk People's Republic in the region of eastern Ukraine where Russian nationalists are trying to forge states independent of Kiev. Her appointment follows on from stunning Natalia Voronina recently being declared the new Minister of Culture of Donetsk People's Republic, another self-proclaimed state in eastern Ukraine. But while Natalia seems to be trying to avoid the focus on her looks, Irina Filatova is the opposite. Scarcely a day goes by without new pictures appearing of her from her life before her rise to the political heights of the new state. Filatova's page on the Russian social network VKontakte, welcomes the users with a profile picture of the foreign minister in her swimsuit, legs open and a beer in the right hand. Although the account may be fake, the pictures are not. A video of her shows her speaking in one of the "press conferences" of the Lugansk People's Republic. She has spoken in the Rovenki City Hall. Both women follow of course in the footsteps of Natalia Poklonskaya, the Prosecutor General of the Republic of Crimea. A video of Poklonskaya at a press conference on 11 March this year was uploaded to YouTube, where her looks and youth went viral among Japanese and Chinese internet users. Within a month, the press conference was viewed over 1.7 million times. Many fans even created anime-style images of her which were uploaded to the internet, further spreading her fame.
