Photos of apparently injured "Human Barbie" Valeria Lukyanova have recently gone viral on social media sites.

The 28-year-old model, who is known for her doll-like looks, claims she was attacked by two strangers outside her home in Odessa, Ukraine, on Halloween night, in what appears to be a "hate crime," according to media reports.

“I was attacked by the entrance of my block of flats,” Lukyanova told the Mail Online.

“I came back home from a shop with bags and entered the door code when two men rushed from the dark and attacked me,” she said, adding that the attackers did not say anything and did not try to rob her.

“It happened in a flash: they hit me on the head, several times on my jaw, then one of them began strangling me,” she said.

The assault continued until one of her neighbors appeared, prompting the attackers to flee, Lukyanova said.

The model had to be hospitalized and was only released on Tuesday.

“I have been on the strongest pain killer for four days, but still woke in the middle of the night from horrible pains,” she said.

The model, who has always insisted her looks were natural, claimed she has been subject to a two-year hate campaign waged by anonymous strangers.

Online users slammed the ordeal was the result of the model’s latest plastic surgery – rumors which Lukyanova strongly denied.
