Fashion historian Alexander Vasiliev, one of the leading of the program «Fashion verdict» on the First channel, believes that the accusations against the transmission from a Finnish journalist, who said that the show degrades women, talks about the popularity of the program, not only in Russia, but abroad as well, but the problem of beauty and fashion in different countries look from different angles.

Earlier media reported that the correspondent of the Finnish broadcasting company Yle, Kerstin Kronwall expressed the view that the Russian program «Fashion verdict» demeans the dignity of women, because it implies criticism of the appearance of the participants, who are forced to make excuses.

«If a Finnish journalist watched the show and talks about her, it says the show is so popular not only in Russia but also abroad. We do not watch Finnish shows, we cannot discuss it, we don’t understand language», — told RIA Novosti Vasiliev.

He noted that, judging by the photos of the journalist, which appeared in the network, «is a male type emancipated women of an intellectual».

«I do not condemn this lady, I understand, a Russian woman seems dangerous to her, not like her. In the West, many women began to play the role of men, they run businesses, hold positions in the government, we are not yet at this level. Our ladies see in changing his appearance a kind of springboard, this applies to both career and personal life,» — said Vasilyev.

He stressed that Russian ladies want to be toned, young, fashionable and elegant.

«The number of plastic surgeries, we have more than in Finland, and the number of painted women, not with white hair — also, we look at the same problem from different angles. Look at the women in our program reflect the view of the Russians as a whole», — said Vasilyev.

According to Vasilyev, Finland cannot be called «a country of high interest to fashion, and opinion journalist — it personal».
