Miss Russia has claimed she used to be ‘avoided’ by the other contestants in the Miss Universe festival.

In an interview with Evening Moscow Omit Russia Anna Linnikova blamed her failure to growth to the competition’s closing 16 on political interference, and said she was once subjected to ‘negative feedback from lengthy-time friends from Ukraine’.

‘Many others avoided me and avoided me just by studying approximately my origins,’ she advised the publication. ‘the ladies from Ukraine and Switzerland merely ran from me like hearth!’

Appearing not to recognize her country’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine, Linnikova stated it was a ‘pity’ that her Ukrainian counterpart Viktoria Apanasenko didn’t need to talk to her.

During one particularly awkward moment captured on digital camera, Linnikova attempted to stand next to Apanasenko all through a line-up at the event, prompting Leave Out Ukraine to ask some of her fellow contestants to switch places with her.
