A former minister has put on a racy display to announce the launch of her own political party.
Aleksandra Klitina, 37, was fired as her role as Ukraine’s deputy infrastructure minister after leaked recordings captured her criticising her boss.
She has now vowed to return to politics to fight corruption problems and revealed her plans in a skin-flashing video.
In the clip she posted on YouTube, Aleksandra is seen wearing a plunging swimsuit while giving the speech outdoors.
She promised that her party will “finally deal with those male political prostitutes” and explained: “I decided to fight for the truth myself because those pants-wearing idiots are hopeless.”
The female politician also criticised male politicians for being “eligible to abuse women”.
She added: “They think that if they have something in their pants, it’s enough for them to be successful and be eligible to abuse women.
“But women are a hundred times smarter and a hundred times more honest than you.”
It is reported that her new political party doesn’t have many members at the moment and the video address seemed to have drawn the public’s attention to her appearance.
Aleksandra was fired last November after two leaks were posted online. The first captured fellow MPs claiming she had only acquired her position “in the bedroom”.
She then became the victim of a prank call, where she criticised her boss, Minister of Infrastructure Vladislav Krikliy, said she would do a better job without him.
But her new message fell on deaf ears by most of her viewers, who were more taken aback by her appearance.
“Super, Aleksandra,” one wrote. “You should go on air every day after 21-00 with such videos and your party will simply swell from new members.”
A second said: “It takes too many clothes to fight politics apparently.”
But some showed their support and praised the new change in the country’s politics.
A viewer wrote: “Well, at least one normal leader! There is something to show the opposition! For others, it’s not in the head, not in the body, but here the arguments are not comic!”
Klitina became an advisor to the head of Ukraine’s State Space Agency, Volodymyr Usov, in June this year, saying she is “helping the Agency with international partnerships, donors and microfinances”.
Not all politicians have the same tactics to introducing new policies. Over in the UK, former PM Theresa May famously opted for a dance at a Conservative party conference in 2018.
