The organization of Miss Russia has announced Alina Sanko as the official representative of Russia for Miss Universe 2020 scheduled to take place on 16th May 2021 in Hollywood, Florida, USA at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The announcement was made via Miss Russia Organization’s social media page.

Hailing from Moscow, Alina is 22-years-old and stands 174 cm tall. She attends the Moscow State University of Land Management, where she is studying architecture.

Not new to the pageantry, Alina represented Azov at Miss Russia 2019.

Last year, Russia did not send a representative at Miss Universe but Alina’s appointment has received with a lot of appreciation and applauses as she seems like an ideal candidate to represent the country at Miss Universe. With her experience, knowledge, and dedication she can be one of the strongest contenders. Alina’s artistic ability, confidence and her determination will be the sheer force to guide her towards performing to the best of her ability at Miss Universe 2020.
