A 17-year-old beauty from Chita, Anyta Baksheeva, was crowned Miss Earth Russia 2019 during the Krasa Rossii 2019 (Beauty of Russia 2019) pageant held at the Vegas City Hall in Moscow on Tuesday, June 26.
Anyta edged out 47 other beauties to win the competition and took over the title from last year’s winner, Daria Kartyshova.
Christina Bugaevskaya and Natalia Fedorova were the first and second runners-up, respectively.
The new Miss Earth Russia will now prepare to represent her country at the Miss Earth 2019 pageant next October in the Philippines.
Russia is yet to win the Miss Earth crown. The country’s highest achievement so far was winning Miss Earth-Fire (runner-up) twice, with Anastasia Trusova in 2014 and Lada Akimova in 2017.
