A THREE-year-old Russian girl was left frigid with fright after watching her “animal” dad repeatedly stab her mother to death, police say.

Denis Yakushev, 29, who now faces a murder charge, had been banned by a court from entering his ex-partner Svetlana Bortnichenko’s home after she complained he had raped and severely beaten her.

But he forced his way to their daughter Ulyana’s third birthday party – and after other guests left, he held the 24-year-old hostage along with the child.

For three days, they were forcibly kept in the flat in the Siberian town of Lesosibirsk, with Svetlana unable to answer calls from worried relatives.

Police at first declined to intervene, but her mother Olga Molchanova, 60, managed to spy into the flat from an adjacent balcony and saw him threatening her.

Eventually Olga persuaded the emergency ministry to send troops to smash their way into the flat.

As they prepared to enter, she heard from behind the door a deafening shriek from her daughter who she had adopted aged eight from an orphanage.

“Svetlana (Sveta) gave out this piercing scream,” she said. “Then the door handle of the door moved, he opened it.

“He was dripping blood. Officers smothered him and I rushed into the apartment. Sveta was covered with a blanket in the hallway.

“I thought that he had been kicking her but I pulled off the blanket, and she was there with her throat cut, and more than 20 stab wounds all over her body.”

“She was also severely bruised. That’s how much he tortured her with a sharp knife over three days, all in the presence of the child.”

Svetlana’s stunned daughter was deeply traumatised and seemed to be in a trance, not responding to Olga, or even seeming to notice her.

“Ulyana sat still on the sofa, her eyes were like they were made of glass,” said Olga. “She did not react to my tears, to other people, or to the anxiety – nothing.”

The child has been taken for urgent psychological help and is reported to be “deeply traumatised”.

Viktoria Shilova, 24, Svetlana’s sister, said: “When Denis drank, he turned into a beast, there was real animal behaviour…

“He worked as a meat loader. He would come home from work and beat Sveta hard, she sometimes came to us to hide from him.

“But he persuaded her every time to return. He bought her a dog, which she always dreamed of – a pug.

“When they started quarrelling again and she ran away he later blackmailed her with this pug.

“He threatened that he would throw it out the window. When he was drunk, he cut her clothes, crushed furniture, household appliances,

His brother-in-law described his actions as “wrong and disgusting”.

He claimed that Yakushev, who faces up to 15 years in jail, was “madly in love with Svetlana” but when she filed to restrict his visits “he flew off the rails”.

Police said Yakushev was “sober” when he killed Svetlana.
