There She is… Miss Russian Army

Picture a Hot Russian Woman who is sexy, beautiful and exotic, assembling and loading an AK-47 in under 15 seconds. Four years ago, in order to increase morale and boost recruitment among young men, the Russian Military held the first ever Miss Russian Army beauty contest.


In June 2005, before a live national television audience, 19 female soldiers and sailors from the Russian Military participated in the competition held at the Russian Army Theatre in Moscow. Highlights of the competition included the women walking down the catwalk in uniform and singing songs that featured top charting lyrics like, "Since we're soldiers, our first concern is automatic weapons; boys come second".


Other highlights included contestants competing in drills, shoot contests, crawling in combat uniforms, entering tanks and armored personal carriers, and running in full combat gear. Alas, the Defense Ministry prohibited a swimsuit competition which they considered too risqué.


To thunderous applause and to the delight of her comrades in uniform, judges crowned Lieutenant Ksenya Agarkova, an engineer with the Russian Navy, as the first Miss Russian Army.


Perhaps if all the world’s armies had contests like Miss Russian Army, then we would be one step closer to world peace. Until then, enjoy our Russian Women with Weapons photo gallery.
