Alyona Alyokhina has written on her Vkontakte page: “Can’t believe there are just a couple of hours left and this f..king year will be over. I’ve never been more excited about a fresh new year to come. 2014, I have a lot of hope for you! Please, don’t let me down! I love you in advance, cause 2013 has been the worst year of my life. No doubt in it. All my nightmares became real this year.
This year ruined my life and ruined me, emotionally and physically. Started in the most horrible way and ended no better. I hate you, 2013. Please, go away and. Burn in hell. I write all this trying to leave all my anger and hate in this year, I don’t wanna keep it in 2014. Thanks to my favorite man Ryan from Yellowcard, to my both Russian and American families, to my best friends and all the others, who supported and helped me make it through this year. Have a good year, everyone! I wish HEALTH to everyone, because this is all we need after all. And the rest we can fix ourselves”.
