Miss Ukraine Universe (Ukrainian: Міс Україна Всесвіт) is a Beauty pageant that began in 2006, after the Miss Ukraine Organization lost the franchise to Oleksandra Nikolayenko.[1][2] The winner of the pageant represents Ukraine at the Miss Universe contest. Historically, Ukraine was represented at Miss Universe by the winner or Runner-up of the Miss Ukraine pageant.


Oleksandra Nikolayenko was invited by Donald Trump to Judge at Miss Universe 2005. Natalie Glebova, Miss Universe 2005 was invited by Oleksandra to visit Ukraine to promote Miss Ukraine Universe contest in 2006.[3] The first edition of the contest was won by Inna Tsymbalyuk.[1]

In April 2016 he owner of “Miss Uлraine Universe” Oleksandra Ruffin has sold the pageant. A foreign-owned international company became the new owner of the “Miss Ukraine Universe” pageant. Both parties stayed satisfied with the results of the agreement. Anna Filimonova is a Pageant Director and holder of the license to conduct “Miss Ukraine Universe” in Ukraine.
