After representing her country on the world pageant stage, former Miss Ukraine Anastasiia Lenna is now fighting for her country against Russia.
“‘Everyone who crosses the Ukrainian border with the intent to invade will be killed!’”, She wrote on Instagram.
Anastasiia, 31, normally works as a public relations manager in Turkey and represented Ukraine in the Miss Grand International beauty pageant in 2018.
In the image accompanying Anastasiia’s Instagram message, she looks solemn and focused as she holds a huge rifle with a pink scope.
Anastasiia is not the only Ukrainian local taking up arms, and reports have risen of civilians lining up to be issued weapons as Ukraine’s considerably smaller army prepares to defend themselves.
