A would-be Queens killer Viktoriya Nasyrova faces 21 years of prison food for her diabolical plot to murder a look-alike friend with a slice of poisoned cheesecake.
“F— you!” defendant Viktoriya Nasyrova shouted at the judge after she was slapped with the lengthy jail term last week for her failed bid to kill Ukrainian immigrant Olga Tsvyk in an August 2016 robbery and identity-theft scam inside the victim’s Forest Hills home.
Nasyrova, a Russian fugitive who re-invented herself, living in Brooklyn, NY was accused of poisoning her look-alike with a cheesecake.
Nasyrova, who fled to New York from Russia in 2014 to dodge a murder investigation, was convicted of attempted murder, assault, unlawful imprisonment and petit larceny. She and the victim shared the same dark hair, same complexion and other physical traits, authorities said.
“A ruthless and calculating con artist is going to prison for a long time for trying to murder her way to personal profit and gain,” said Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz.
“Thankfully, the victim survived the attack on her life and we were able to deliver justice to her.”

Salon worker Tsvyk testified how Nasyrova, under the guise of getting her eyelashes done, came to her home with a slice of tainted cheesecake from a Brooklyn bakery, with investigators later determining the desert was dosed with the tranquilizer phenazepam.
The unconscious victim was found a day later dressed in lingerie, with pills scattered around her body in an attempt to make the scene look like a suicide, prosecutors said, describing the attempted killing as a “cold and calculated plan.”

Tsvyk was discovered by her sister and immediately hospitalized, only to return home and discover her passport, employment card, clothes, a gold ring and cash were missing. The woman testified Nasyrova sold off her clothing and jewelry for about $100,000.
“For her, it was an easy thing to try and take the life of another person,” she said at the sentencing.
“It was easy for her to steal, it was easy for her to kill.”
Queens Supreme Court Justice Kenneth Holder also sentenced the defendant to five years of post-release supervision after describing her as “an extremely dangerous woman.”

Viktoria Nasyrova is also wanted in Russia for the slaying of a Alla Alekseenko [photo]. Back in Krasnoda, she allegedly robbed Alekseenko [photo] of $17,000 in cash and jewelry after killing and burying the 54-year-old in an unmarked grave, before fleeing Russia
A Homeland Security agent testified at the trial that Nasyrova’s visa was set to expire only days after the murder attempt.
Syvk took the witness stand to detail her near-death experience, sharing the details of what was intended as her last meal.
“I couldn’t get up from my bed,” she recalled. “My head was aching terribly. My sister was helping me to the bathroom … It was very bad.”
Prosecutors alleged Nasyrova was determined to avoid returning to her homeland and face pending charges in the killing of 54-year-old Alla Aleksenko, whose charred corpse was discovered buried in a grave in western Russia.
The defendant came to the attention of the NYPD after allegedly drugging and robbing Brooklyn men after they met through dating apps.
