Miss Russia (Russian: Мисс Россия) is a national Beauty pageant in Russia.

History[edit]

The Miss Russia crown

The pageant has been running since 1992, however there was no Miss Russia 1994,[citation needed] 2000[1] or 2008.

Since 2007, the winner of Miss Russia represents her country in both Miss World and Miss Universe. However, if she's unable to participate, a runner-up is sent instead.

Russia has won three major international titles: Miss World 1992, Miss Universe 2002, who was later dethroned, and Miss World 2008.
