Former Miss Grand Ukraine Anastasia Lenna has sparked reactions after joining the Ukrainian military following Russia’s invasion.
The beauty who represented Ukraine in the 2015 Miss Grand International beauty contest made the announcement in an update on her Instagram page.
She also shared a series of photos of herself carrying a gun and in military uniform warning invaders from crossing into Ukraine with intent to cause harm.
“Everyone who crosses the Ukrainian border with the intent to invade will be killed,” Lenna captioned one of the photos.
In a separate post, Lenna called on Ukrainians to remove all road signs to make it difficult for invading soldiers to navigate through Ukraine.
“Dismantling road signs on all roads of the country. The enemy has a pathetic connection, they don’t orientate the terrain. Let’s help them go straight to hell
“The State Road Agency of Ukraine calls on all road organisations, territorial communities, local authorities to immediately start dismantling road signs nearby,” she wrote.
Lenna is a marketing and management graduate from Slavistik University in Kyiv and she previously worked as a model and public relations manager in Turkey.
She has also worked as a translator and speaks five languages.
