Due to the full-scale Russian invasion, the Miss Ukraine Universe Organizing Committee decided to not hold the traditional contest and show this year and to transfer the Miss Ukraine Universe title to Miss Ukraine Universe 2021 1st Runner-Up Viktoria Apanasenko from Chernihiv.
Viktoria is the representative of Ukraine at the Miss Universe 2022 contest.
Victoria Apanasenko has proven herself the best candidate for this title. She is a volunteer and helps to prepare food for the battalions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and people, who became victims of war. Together with her friend, Viktoria provides food, medicine, and hygiene products to children, the elderly, and internally displaced persons in Ukraine.
