A video clip of the press conference was uploaded by a Japanese poster onto YouTube; in English it was titled 'New Attorney General of Crimea is beautiful', in Japanese the title stated 'Too beautiful'. The clip (which featured no translation) quickly racked up more than 300,000 YouTube views within a day.

Natalia has stated in an interview with Komsomolskaya Pravda that since she is often busy with her everyday work, her daughter keeps track of all her online fanart for her.
Following the flood of Poklonskaya fanart, numerous real-life images were discovered on social media sites and also went viral around the world.
Dear Vladimir Vladimirovich !!4) Not so funny, the Czechs and other former Warsaw Pact countries are freaked out - they still remember the Prague Spring, I gather.
We learned, that you are going to send troops
to protect Russian speaking people in Crimea.
Because of this we ask you,
please send troops to Vologoskaja oblast.
My here all are Russian speaking i we are very oppressed.
Our ill people do not have medication,

With respect and hope for liberation,
Russian speaking citizens of Vologda Oblast.
