New Partnership Expands Global Opportunity for Miss Russia Contestants

MOSCOW, Dec. 13 /PRNewswire/ — The Miss Russia Organization today announced that for the first time the winner of its annual pageant will compete in the Miss World contest, expanding global opportunity for Miss Russia contestants. To officially announce the new partnership between the two organizations, the current Miss World, Tatana Kucharova of the Czech Republic, will attend the 2006 Miss Russia Pageant event on Dec. 15.

The Miss Russia Pageant, which is owned and operated by Russian Standard Corporation, brings together local pageant winners from 50 regions throughout Russia. This year’s contestants will converge on a spectacular venue next to Red Square to compete for the Miss Russia crown.
