The Mrs America Pageant is referring to the location of the pageant as Sevastopol, Moscow. They've never implied it would be the city in Ukraine. There IS a neighborhood in Moscow named Sevastopol. Do you think they're all sitting in their office laughing thier asses off at us?

Just wondering why there is a difference in the state sashes. I notice some states have a rhinestone sash and other states do not. I did not have one but now my state awards the winner with the rhinestone one. Is there a way to order one if you are a former winner. I would like the rhinestone one just for keepsakes.

Date Posted: 16:29:45 11/12/14 Wed

Some thoughts on next year’s Mrs. America/Mrs. Russia pageants.

Sevastolpol! Really? Why would anyone want to go to that part of the world? Although not very close to the troubled areas of Donetsk and Lubhansk (500) miles, it still sits on the Crimean peninsula, a hotbed of contention for Putin and Russia. Politically speaking, Putin wants to rejoin the Russian Federation and the first stop was Crimea because of its location as a major shipping port.
Notice in the announcement at the Mrs America Pageant, they announce the pageant as Moscow/Sevastopol and they refer to Sevastopol as being IN Russia. Maybe David Marmel knows something none of us know.

The following is merely speculation, not known as a fact and not intended to smear, libel or stain anyone’s reputation:
WHY does the pageant always end up in Russia every few years or so. With winners alternately being Russian/American/Russian/American? Could be there is a business venture between two parties. Are the Russian crime families involved? WHAT is the payoff for bringing what is a Patriotic American event to a place where it not wise to travel to, nor does anyone really want to go there. Kick-backs?

According to what I have read, Parties in Russia are paying for Passport, Visa, Travel and Accommodations for the contestants and possibly their families. What payoff is there in that offer? Will having a beauty pageant in a sad little seaport boost tourism? Have you looked at this place? The best accommodations are the Best Western.

This just does not feel right to me on every level possible.

Finally, I put this idea to a friend who is an international diplomat and works in international educational relations. This is what she said:

“This is Putin’s way of saying that the Crimean Peninsula, which is viewed internationally as a part of Ukraine, is irretrievably now Russian territory. This is Putin thumbing his nose at the international community. If I were the owner of the pageant, I would cancel it and gain the eternal thanks of the free world (though he’d like lose a bundle of money). But I know of no U.S. laws that would be broken by allowing the pageant to be held in Crimea. As far as crime is concerned, I am 100% sure, first, that influential oligarchs and their minions will make money and, second, that Russian organized crime is involved in the pageant - not because of the Russia/Ukraine crisis but because this is Russia we’re talking about.”

So the video is up on the Mrs. America Presents page announcing the pageant next year in Sevastopol, Russia.

One problem. Sevastopol isn't in Russia. It's in the Ukraine. It's in the disputed territory of Crimea, internationally considered part of the Ukraine but currently controlled and occupied by Russia, and the Russian military.

It was once a tourist area but it is currently anything but.

There are warnings from the state department (http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/english/alertswarnings/ukraine-travel-warning.html) and elsewhere that Americans should not go to Crimea, and if they must, to avoid appearing American. I'm sure that will be easy for the contestants, what with the giant banners they'll be wearing all week.
