The 27-year-old mother-of-two stepped up her career as a fashion model

The daughter of Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko stepped up her career as a fashion model with runway work at a Milan show, Russia`s Izvestia newspaper reported Tuesday. Vitalina Yushchenko took part in the showing of the summer collection of the Ukrainian designer Aina Gase, according to DPA.

Vitalina`s portfolio also includes photographs posed for Russian Vogue. Prior to taking up modelling, the 27-year-old mother-of-two had pursued a career as a pop singer.

Vitalina is Yushchenko`s eldest child by a previous marriage.

Ukrainian media have accused Vitalina and her younger brother Andriy, 23, of trying to cash in on their father`s position as president.

Both Yushchenko children lead high profile public lives, with Ukrainian society pages chronicling in detail their lifestyle, property, and celebrity friends.
