The national contest "Miss Ukraine" will be held this year despite the military aggression against our country. The team of contestants who represent Ukraine in the Miss World is extremely important, because it is another opportunity to draw more attention to the war in our country.

as a jury. So, the girl who will represent our country this year at the Miss
World contest will be determined by a truly national choice," - emphasized
Veronika Shchiptsova. In the near future, the participants will be presented on
the contest website, as well as on the official pages of "Miss
Ukraine" in social networks, and the result of the online voting will be
