OREANDA-NEWS. The Kiev Court of Appeal in Kiev granted permission to detain the former Prosecutor General of Crimea, and now the Russian Ambassador to Cape Verde, Natalya Poklonskaya, who is suspected of high treason in Ukraine. This was announced on Tuesday by the press service of the court.

"The Kiev Court of Appeal granted permission to detain the former so-called prosecutor of the annexed Crimea, suspected of high treason," the court's website says.

Thus, the court granted the petition of the Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine to grant permission for the detention of Poklonskaya "in order to bring her to court to participate in the consideration of the petition for choosing a preventive measure in the form of detention."

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said on October 26 that he would make every effort not to "leave alone" Poklonskaya. Earlier, former Deputy Prosecutor General Gunduz Mammadov said that the Ukrainian side could start preparing documents for the extradition of Poklonskaya from Cape Verde.

On October 13, Russian President Vladimir Putin appointed Poklonskaya as Russian Ambassador to the Republic of Cape Verde. Prior to that, Poklonskaya served as deputy chairman of the international affairs committee in the State Duma. The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said that Poklonskaya will not be able to hide from the Ukrainian justice "even in Africa." The official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia Maria Zakharova, commenting on the reaction of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine to the appointment of Poklonskaya as ambassador, suggested Kiev to start applying Ukrainian justice on the territory of the country.

In 2014, the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine opened a criminal case against Poklonskaya on suspicion of committing high treason, in April 2016 - on charges of involvement in the ban in Russia of the activities of the public organization "Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People" (banned in Russia).
