Marinka Smirnova illustrates that stereotypes sometimes can be spot on
We’re generally taught that stereotyping people is wrong but in the case of the former wife of a Russian oligarch, illustration is provided of someone who fulfils the role of a moron just perfectly.
In an interview with the strangely titled Super, Meet The Russians “star” Marinka Smirnova, the ex-wife of Timur Artemyev, the co-founder of the Russian mobile phone retailer Euroset, opted to speak about her wealth, her life in London and her spending habits.
In the feature, this blonde spendthrift laments that she is poor “compare[d] with the Arab sheik” yet boasts about spending £50,000 in one hit Harrods and states that “half a million” for a ring is “normal”. Smirnova continues by suggesting that she has “no servants” yet then refers to having “three or four” staff and adds that she “needs” a “huge mansion” in Chelsea. That this contradictory personality is plainly a little confused by the questions she has been is asked is not surprising but frankly that she is prepared to give such answers actually shows nothing other than her vulgarity.
“I’m not a dog to run around” is another of this woman’s bizarre comments. She may be right there but this ridiculous clotheshorse would do well to not give another interview. May Marinka Smirnova please remain silent in 2015.

She is appalling. What a horrible attitude she has and having read her interview I hope that she loses all her money and ends up poor. She is an ill-educated snob and there is no good reason why anyone should even want to interview her.
Can she not afford a decent pair of shoes?
Why are you surprised?
I haven’t commented for a while and now I feel compelled. Mrs Smirnova could redeem her reputation if she decided to donate to the Find Madeleine campaign. She can afford it and poor dear Gerry and Kate McCann would truly appreciate her support for their search to find their beloved daughter Madeleine. Why don’t you write about this? It is ridiculous and appalling that you don’t support Find Madeleine and unkind of you not to cover it.
Mrs Smirnova is not breaking the law, spending her own wonga, as a deeply religious and conscientious man, I pray that she would squander her money more equally. In Margate we too have bookmakers and playboys, booze and plenty of immoral activity. The woman must not be a snob, she must give Thanet a chance of economic upliftment. The Harrods boss is coping well………
She has the face of a dog and doubtless her husband’s money was dubious in source. As for her new companion….
I knew it…l was relaxing for just that second too long…and Trott struck
My wonderful aunt used to say ‘ One shouldn’t laugh ‘
Perhaps that old lag Thomas McLoughlin should add her to his list of targets. He’s an old dog so they’d be perfectly suited. Vile bodies flock together.
