After the completion of the beauty pageant, Ukrainian put the most amazing part of her costume at auction in New York. The wings of the Archangel Michael, which opened behind the shoulders of the woman during one of the stages of the competition, conquered almost everyone. They were sold for $10.500. The Ukrainian model does not plan to keep the money. The entire amount is transferred to the armed forces of Ukraine.
"These funds will go to Kind Deeds prostheses and rehabilitation of our military. Very glad that these wings will help facilitate our defenders' lives," says Apanasenko.
The wings were part of the national costume Warrior of Light. It was created for 4 months and even at the time when the country turned off the light.
