Russian dominatrix jailed for poisoning plot fears coronavirus death on Rikers

The Russian-born dominatrix who allegedly tried to kill her doppelganger-friend with a slice of poison cheesecake in 2016 said Thursday that she fears for her life on coronavirus-stricken Rikers Island.

Viktoriya Nasyrova, who is locked up in the Rose M. Singer infirmary on Rikers, told The Post in a phone call that the facility isn’t being properly cleaned and the janitor has been told not to return.

“We’re all going to drop dead here. Everyone is scared. That’s all anyone talks about,” said Nasyrova, who also allegedly killed her 54-year-old neighbor in her native Russia and torched the body before going on the lam for two years.

“I’m scared I’m going to lose my life. They don’t have ventilators. They only have IVs. We have three phones between all of us. When I ask for sanitizer to wipe down the phones, they won’t give it to me because it contains alcohol,” she added.

Nasyrova said the ward’s janitor was told to stop coming to the center and normal food handlers have not been seen — with inmates instead handling food distribution.

The infirmary’s ventilation system is also kaput and it hasn’t been properly cleaned in months, she claimed.

“When I go to the bathroom, I take my soap and paper towels and try to clean it as much as I can,” she added. “They don’t care if inmates die, less problems for them. It’s a question of life or death now. What if I can’t breathe in here. Why am I risking my life to be here?”

Nasyrova, who claimed she was a masseuse, was arrested in 2017 for allegedly drugging her friend with a slice of cheesecake in an attempt to steal her identity.

That was the last in a string of alleged crimes that began with a murder in Russia and stretched to Brooklyn, where she hid out in Sheepshead Bay to escape authorities in her homeland.

In Brooklyn, she went by the names “Rachel” and “Mara” while working as a dominatrix, she previously told The Post.

“I was giving them what they weren’t getting at home,” she said of her clients, mostly married men in search of sadomasochistic humiliation. “You know what I’m talking about. Men who want to be women, but they can’t openly declare it.”

On Wednesday, the Department of Correction reported 75 inmates had tested positive for coronavirus in city jails, up from the 52 that were reported the day before.

The agency did not provide a break down of which facilities the inmates were housed at, but a majority of cases were on Rikers Island.

The correction department did not immediately respond to request for comment on Nasyrova’s claims.
