Lokomotiv will forever remain in my heart! I have been with the team since the first days of its existence, and in four years we have achieved amazing success – we have twice become the champions of Russia, twice won the silver of the Super League, and performed well in the Champions League. But, most importantly, we have become a big friendly family, we have overcome many difficulties together,” Voronkova said.
The 26-year-old athlete thanked all the fans of the club for their support, and also noted that now it was time for her to try something new and go through new challenges.
