Lukyavnova best known for her Barbie like appearance began popping up on social media in the last couple of years. She admits to having numerous plastic surgeries to achieve her near plastic like appearance.

In the interview Idov describes his meeting as the closest thing he has had to an alien encounter. According to the interview,” Valeria wasn't in on the Barbie branding. She preferred to call herself Amatue, a name she claimed had appeared to her in a dream. Most of the Amatue videos were intended to be some sort of transcendental self-help lectures. I'm not sure. Like everyone, I was staring too hard at her image on-screen to actually listen. Was she real—in the sense of existing in the three-dimensional world—or a Photoshop experiment run amok?”

During the interview Lukyavnova says that there is no real beauty because of race mixing. She says in the 60’s there were real beautiful women but since races are mixed now, there is no real beauty. She goes on to say, “I love the Nordic image myself. I have white skin; I am a Nordic type—perhaps a little Eastern Baltic, but closer to Nordic."

Idov said he was hoping to get a Barbie loving girl, instead he interviews a “racist alien”. When asked about children Lukyavnova stated that idea of having children repulses her. She goes on to state, “Most people have children to fulfill their own ambitions, not to give anything." They don't think about what they can give this child, what they can teach her.

She concluded the tirade saying she would, “rather die from torture”. You can read the full interview here.
