"Clashes between Finnish and Russian spouses over child care and child custody got a new twist with the start of a drama series on Russia's state-run TV1 that presents an image of the Finns as rude, sullen racists."
"Partly filmed in Finland last year, the series presents a stereotypical image of the Finns, starting with a Finnish mother-in-law who gives her Russian daughter-in-law a grave plot as a birthday present. The 8-part drama depicts all of the Finnish characters as rude, sullen and unprincipled. Four of the actors in the series are Finns. The series is not being broadcast in a prime-time slot, but rather during mid-day when the bulk of the audience consists of the elderly and housewives."
so... they had been filming plot from last year as drama for ORT... ahem...
