"Everyone who crosses the Ukrainian border with the intent to invade will be killed!" said one post made in English on Saturday, accompanied by a photo of armed soldiers blocking a roadway. Another post joked that "Our [Ukraine's] army is fighting in such a way that NATO should apply for entry into Ukraine."

She took to her Instagram to refresh her kin about taking arms to safeguard her country and the photograph immediately detonated on the web.

And they are fighting their hearts out. "I leave the heels and glamour to defend her country even if it cost her her own life she is military and although she was out of service she decided to rejoin the army to fight for the peace and freedom of her nation" (Miss Ukraine, Anastasiia Lenna)
