MOSCOW, November 24. /TASS/. Miss Russia-2016 Yana Dobrovolskaya is convinced that politics will not influence the Miss World beauty pageant to be held in Washington DC on December 18.
"I think the political situation will have no influence on the results," Dobrovolskaya said at a news conference at TASS.
She was supported by the first runner up, Yuliana Korolkova, who will represent Russia at the Miss Universe pageant in January 2017. Its location and precise date have not been announced yet.
Dobrovolskaya, an 18-year old professional dancer from the west Siberian city of Tyumen, said she will leave for the United States on Saturday and will take to Washington six bags with dresses, shoes and gifts.
Korolkova, 21, said she is planning to surprise the Miss Universe jury with a national costume decorated with pearls and artificial gemstones.
