Pereverzeva started off by praising the country saying, “A kind cow with very big eyes, funny horns and always chewing its mouth; oh, what sweet milk she gives!” But the words she added hereafter raised a lot of eyebrows. “My Russia is a beggar. My Russia cannot help her elderly and orphans. From it, bleeding, like from a sinking ship, engineers, doctors, teachers are fleeing, because they have nothing to live on. My Russia – it is an endless Caucasian war,” she added.
Russian media took up the story and presented it as the main story with the headline “Did our Miss Earth 2012 contestant slate Russia or tell the truth?” While Sergei Chernykh is of the view that the girl spoke the truth but she is being questioned as she spoke in front of foreigners.
According to The Telegraph, commentator Dmitry Steshin did not approve of the lady's words at all and said that since she was “trading her body in photographs to arouse the sexual instincts of the end consumer,” her words or opinions do not matter at all.
Miss Pereverzeva had won the title of Miss Moscow in 2010 and is a former model and finance specialist. She has also featured in the Russian version of Playboy last year and also got top marks for make-up round earlier this month. The winner of the Miss Earth 2012 will be announced on Saturday.
