Ex-Miss Ukraine takes up arms to fight off Putin's army

A former Miss Ukraine is one of hundreds of locals taking up arms against invading Russian forces in Kyiv tonight - as satellite images released today show Vladimir Putin's army encircling the capital city.

Anastasiia Lenna, 31, was pictured with a huge rifle, complete with a pink scope, as she warned in an Instagram post: 'Everyone who crosses the Ukrainian border with the intent to invade will be killed!'

The now viral image came amid reports of long snaking queues of citizens waiting to be issued weapons in the capital, which is expecting another Russian assault.

Ms Lenna, who usually works as a public relations manager in Turkey, posted the image alongside two hashtags, reading 'stand with Ukraine' and 'hands off Ukraine'.

It is not the first time she has been pictured with a gun and previous posts appear to show her training with weapons in wooded areas and indoor training grounds.
