Investigative measures are being taken against the Minister of Culture of Crimea Arina Novoselskaya. About this on your page in the social network “ VKontakte '' written by the head of the region Sergey Aksenov.

Novoselskaya joined the Crimean government in February 2014, before the referendum on the entry of the peninsula into Russia.

In 2015, Novoselskaya, in her own words, for a long time recalled appearing in a leopard suit at a press conference with ex-Deep Purple and Rainbow vocalist Joe Lynn Turner. She made excuses that she had come to a meeting with a rock star, and not with Aksenov, but even so she admitted that she “ probably went overboard with the outfit. ''
Until 2014, Novoselskaya was a director for a year and artistic director of the puppet theater, av2004 & ndash; 2006 & mdash; director of the school of aesthetic education.
