0 of 6

    Russia is also participating in Euro 2012 and the team has its WAGs (Wives and Girlfriends) as well. While Irina Shayk is the WAG of Cristiano Ronaldo, who will represent Portugal, she is part of the venerable list of WAGs of Russia during Euro 2012.

    It is not fair to have done a slideshow of the WAGs of Spain for Euro 2012 without dedicating another one to the largest country in the world. I also included a WAG from Belarus because of her links with Russia and one with secondary loyalty to the country.

    The invitation is set to sit back, relax and enjoy the five top WAGs of Russia and Belarus in Euro 2012.

5. Yulia Arshavina

    Oksana Andersson is another WAG from Russia who is currently married to Christian Wilhemsson of Sweden.

    While Sweden is participating in Euro 2012, Ms. Andersson deserves to be mentioned for her position as WAG from Russia because of her birthplace.

2. Natalia Vodianova

    Natalia Vodianova is a fashion model who supported Russia in Euro 2008. She was born in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia and left Russia for the western half of Europe at an early age.

    According to Ms. Vodianova earned her spot as a WAG after she declared her support for Russia during Euro 2008. Whether that classifies her as a WAG is up for discussion, but a decision was made to place her on the top-five WAG list from Russia.

    She is currently a model and philanthropist who lives in the United Kingdom. According to IMDb, she appeared in the film Clash of the Titans.

    It remains to be seen if she will support Russia in Euro 2012.

1. Irina Shayk

    Irina Shayk is one of the well known WAGs from Russia and her boyfriend is Cristiano Ronaldo. According to the entertainment magazine Zimbio, Ms. Shayk met Ronaldo met via the Armani Exchange programs. in a h/t to Zimbio named Ms. Shayk 10th in the top 20 models. She remains in first on this list for her contributions on stage as a model and off the stage as a WAG.

    She is the ambassador of POMOGI, which is an organization dedicated to helping sick children in Russia. Ms. Shayk is an example of a WAG with a heart.
