The official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said that dreamed of becoming a sinologist, I never considered myself the «Golden youth», and also received the appointment to his current position.

«It was definitely not a special selection in favor of women, they say, we don’t have such a face. We in the Ministry, no such approach is artificial stimulation of gender balance. I think it is good. We have an understanding that each position must be a professional, regardless of gender or any other affiliation,» said Zakharova in an interview to the program «reach the stars» on TV channel «Mir».

«Yes, I won the lottery, but I bought all the tickets», she added.

Of sinologists in press secretaries

The diplomat noted that the first post in the foreign Ministry were not the same, and which she dreamed of and which was arranged instead of sinologist Zakharov became the press officer.

«When I after graduation I joined the foreign Ministry, I was told that in this area no, and took the press-service. For me it was a big blow. Imagine what five years to learn Chinese, to do research work in this direction and to failure,» — said Zakharov.

A business trip to new York, too, was not as fabulous as you can imagine, admitted Zakharova.

«There is no subject that the Russian permanent mission at the UN does not comment on, because we are permanent members of the security Council, through us, is all. There is a nuance difference in time. When local journalists fall asleep, Wake up journalists who work in Moscow, and they do not care that you work in the States. It calls and texts 24 hours a day, and the more you work, the more you get,» — says Zakharov.

«It was a huge challenge and experience,» she concluded.

Wedding before a business trip to USA

On the new York trip had the wedding Zakharova. With her future husband, she met a month before leaving the US.

«Come to me, my future husband, made there offer and we went signed. It was solemn, and fun. Probably, now it looks awkward, but it was very sincere. We did it nor for someone at the wedding was exactly as many guests as you need — exactly two. And there was a photographer who a year ago why it leaked all of these photos», — said the diplomat.

According to Zakharova, after she called the photographer and asked why he did it, because the images were paid for and became property of the family. «He said, you know, all you see official, amid some sort of emblems, behind the podium, and I saw you so I just wish you and this see,» she said.

Work and free time

Speaking about his work schedule, the foreign Ministry representative noted that she had irregular working hours. «We can be invited to work and at seven in the morning, and at eight, the day ends when the user says. This is the specificity of our work. You can build a great plan for the week ahead, and come to work — and within an hour everything will change and all will need to do the wheel,» — said Zakharov.

The diplomat also said that despite the official privileges goes in the regular stores and often appears to be official to raise the prestige of this concept.

According to Zakharov, it is important to demonstrate that the official is not necessarily bribes and a lack of understanding of how ordinary people live. «I wanted to show that the official living the same life. My life has not changed, in addition to the appearance of the official car, I go to the same shops as all», — said the official representative of the foreign Ministry.

«I didn’t do anything special, I had no concept, no image, but I deliberately called themselves official. By the time my destination is the word we have entrenched in the lexicon, unfortunately, with a negative shade. «Official» is on the level of abuse,» — says Zakharov.

«Golden youth — not for me»

The diplomat also said that although he studied in MGIMO — departmental institution of the Ministry of foreign Affairs, which is considered one of the most popular among the «Golden youth» — themselves the elite took.

«Golden youth is certainly not about me, this house never was. Parents (father was a diplomat) had to work for themselves, we did not have genetic revving up for some kind of range,» — said Zakharov.

She also remembered how at the age of six came with his parents to China. «I remember my childhood memories, it was a test. To life the Golden youth is not exactly treated,» — said the diplomat.

About the passion of music

Zakharov told the man I wanted to be and why got my post© RIA Novosti / Evgeny to Betemporary in photobacteria commented on the draw of the U.S. permanent representative to the UN procuratorial foreign Ministry spokesman spoke about his passion for music. «I do not write it as it comes, sometimes so that it is impossible not to write. This story started when the skies over Syria Turkish fighter jet was shot down by a Russian plane, and it killed our hero Peshkov, and then killed our soldiers, to rescue the second pilot. After some time I got it was what happened when it came to melody. I don’t play any musical instruments, don’t know music, never studied music. Just send a text with the music, I didn’t even record. I sang into the phone,» — said the diplomat.

In the spring of 2017 Zakharova crossed paths with producer Maxim Fadeev and asked him to help in the design of the composition. «I sent him the song, is exactly so much time, how long does this record for about three minutes, calling me Fadeev and says that the song will sing Nargis (Zakirova), and he takes it in production» — concluded Zakharov.
