Russia is a 'beggar', says Miss Earth entrant Natalia Pereverzeva

Sydney, Tue, 20 Nov 2012 ANI

Sydney, Nov. 20 (ANI): Russia's Miss Earth entrant Natalia Pereverzeva has caused outrage in her country by calling it "a beggar."

In a remarkable outburst, the 24-year-old-model said Russia was "a great artery, from which the 'chosen' few people are draining away its wealth," the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

Pereverzeva issued the attack in response to a standard question, asked of all Miss Earth contestants, about what made her proud of her nation.

Pereverzeva, a former finance specialist, began the attack by first praising Russia, saying that her country was "a kind cow with very big eyes, funny horns and always chewing its mouth; oh, what sweet milk she gives!"

Then veering off the message, she said "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," the publication quoted her as saying.

The stinging indictment, published on the pageant's website, has caused an uproar in Russia.

Pereverzeva, who was Miss Moscow in 2010, had courted controversy last year also by posing for the Russian Playboy. (ANI)
