When Natalia Pereverzeva, who was crowned Miss Moscow in 2010 and posed topless in Playboy last year, was asked what made her proud of her country at the environmentally conscious Miss Earth pageant in thePhilippines, she launched into a tirade against corruption and crony capitalism.

“My Russia…is (a) poor, long, suffering country, mercilessly torn to pieces by greedy, dishonest, unbelieving people. My Russia – it is a great artery, from which the “chosen” few are draining away its wealth,” the 24-year old brunette wrote on the Miss Earth website. (http://www.missearth.tv/delegates_russia.php)

She also called Russia “an endless Caucasian war,” in a reference to two wars the Russian army fought with separatists in the North Caucasus province of Chechnya and an ongoing insurgency that has spread to the broader mostly Muslim region.
