In 2016, Viktoria Nasyrova, a Russian woman living in New York City, was convicted of attempted murder and sentenced to 21 years in prison for poisoning her look-alike, Tatiana Korovina, with cheesecake laced with a sedative.

The two women had met in 2013 and quickly became friends. They were both originally from Russia and had similar physical appearances. Nasyrova was reportedly jealous of Korovina’s looks and success, and she began to stalk her.

On the day of the poisoning, Nasyrova invited Korovina to her apartment for cheesecake. Korovina accepted the invitation and ate the cheesecake, which had been laced with a sedative. Korovina soon became unconscious, and Nasyrova scattered pills around her body.

A passerby found Korovina and called 911. Korovina was taken to the hospital and survived, but she suffered from memory loss and other health problems.

Nasyrova was arrested and charged with attempted murder. She was convicted in February 2016 and sentenced to 21 years in prison.

This case is a reminder of the dangers of jealousy and revenge. It is important to seek help if you are feeling these emotions, and to never resort to violence.


Jealousy and revenge are powerful emotions that can lead people to do terrible things. If you are feeling these emotions, it is important to seek help. There are many resources available to help you deal with these emotions in a healthy way. Violence is never the answer.

In addition to the above, here are some additional details about the case:

  • Nasyrova’s defense attorney argued that she was not guilty by reason of insanity. However, the jury found her guilty of attempted murder.
  • Nasyrova is currently serving her sentence at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women in New York.
  • Korovina has since recovered from the poisoning and is now living in Russia.

This case has sparked a debate about the dangers of social media. Some people believe that social media can lead to jealousy and envy, which can in turn lead to violence. Others believe that social media is not to blame for Nasyrova’s actions and that she would have committed the crime regardless of her use of social media.

Ultimately, it is up to each individual to decide how they use social media and to be aware of the potential dangers of jealousy and revenge.
