The Russian delegation headed by Minister of foreign Affairs Sergei Lavrov arrived in Saudi Arabia on an official visit. The official representative of the foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova in Facebook published a photo showing her in extremely strict clothes — a black long dress and headscarf.
“I was asked whether we will observe the local dress code. And how?” — she wrote. Some felt that the official representative the Ministry of foreign Affairs too actively adapts to the local rules. “It suits you, but it is better not to adjust, and only stick to a few rules (closed hands, without plunging neckline and long skirt or pants),” wrote a user of a social network.
Zakharov responded that only took the opportunity to wear your favorite Maxi. “Mash, in my opinion, more on deflection seems,” “Oh, for completeness of effect had a huge Orthodox cross top wear”, “should Not bend under the changing world… Why the sheikhs will not arrive in Russia in the shirts and their wives in sundresses and kokoshniks?” “Maria Zakharova and here, for example, Frau Merkel, in may basically do not are seduced by this crap. Her for that respect. And you “doprogibaetes,” the commentators write.
However, many do not hide admiration:”Here is the difference of a diplomat from Amateur! Maria, You are a true diplomat! My respects as a professional and a WOMAN with a capital letter. The outfit looks great on You”. However, such a strict way not everyone liked. “They have that someone died?”, “Why don’t Russian people?” — wrote the user.
