Well, to the point now. Russian women are known for their beauty, among other things. So, I've decided to make a series of 10 pages about the 10 most beautiful Russian stars not widely known outside the country.

Miss Universe Kosovo

Miss Universe Kosova (English: Miss Universe Kosovo) is a national beauty pageant that sends representatives from Kosovo to the Miss Universe pageant since 2008.
On April 4, 2008, Fadil Berisha, the Miss Universe Kosovo photographer of Miss Universe’s official photos, hosted the inaugural "Miss Universe Kosova" pageant where Zana Krasniqi was crowned and thus represented Kosovo in the Miss Universe pageant.
This was the first appearance in a Miss Universe Miss Universe Kosovo pageant for Miss Kosovo following the country's declaration of independence on February 17, 2008.
Krasniqi eventually placed as a Top 10 finalist at the Miss Universe Kosovo 2008 Miss Universe pageant. She is the first ever Kosovar woman to enter and place in the contest, ending up in 6th place among the top ten, just two tenths of a point from the Final 5.
The following year turned out to be another success for the Miss Universe Kosovo pageant: Marigona Dragusha, known as "Gona Dragusha", placed second runner-up to Miss Universe 2009 in the Bahamas.
Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Serbia and the self-proclaimed Republic of Kosovo. Kosovo declared independence on 17 February 2008, while Serbia claims it as part of its own sovereign territory. Kosovo is recognised by 72 of the 192 UN member states.
