“I went to the kitchen, asked her if she wanted to eat.

“He said he also wanted to eat, but I replied that he can prepare it himself.

“From that moment he became aggressive.

“He attacked me, and our friend [also in the flat in St Petersburg] pulled him away.”

As she was cutting a tomato with a kitchen knife she claims he yelled at her and “grabbed me again”.

Currently under house arrest after eight months in pre-trial detention, she told an interviewer that she “tried to push him away” and in the fight she inadvertently stabbed him in the chest.

“I saw blood, saw a knife in my hand,” she said.

“And I was scared that he would take this knife and just chop me to death.

“Then I called an ambulance, tried to bring him to senses, and gave him water.

“He said: ‘It’s not painful’, and added: ‘Forgive me’.”
