A woman who says she has fallen in love with convicted killer Graham Dwyer has been banned from visiting him in prison.

Smitten Victoria Andreenkova (37) has been barred from seeing the murderer after a decision by prison authorities. 

The 37-year-old, who is living in Dublin but is originally from Russia, struck up a relationship with Dwyer after he invited her to visit him in Midlands Prison. 

The decision to ban her from seeing Dwyer was taken after it was suspected Dwyer had been advising her to wear certain clothing during their visits. 

She has said the notorious murderer has “touched her heart” and described him as a “tender and soft” person.

“We are soulmates. I find him a very intriguing person. He is very honest,” she said at the weekend

Prison authorities, however, have banned her from visiting him. 

A source told the Irish Daily Star: "There was an altercation with prison staff when an issue arose over the clothing she wore to visit Dwyer. 

"It was feared Dwyer had advised her on what to wear when coming to see him in prison. She has now been banned from seeing him. 

Victoria, who lives in west Dublin, struck up a friendship with the father of three after, she claims, he sent her a letter.

However, the Sunday World revealed the pair first grew close after Victoria contacted Dwyer to tell him that she believed he was innocent.

Instead, she outrageously claimed that a Kildare-based garda was responsible for the murder of Elaine O’Hara.

Despite the fact that there was not a shred of suspicion or evidence against the officer in question, Victoria posted a video online naming him as a suspect and made a statement to gardai.

The Russian-born mother has also previously made national headlines after she made allegations against a second garda.

Speaking to the Sunday World at the weekend, Victoria said she did not want to comment on her relationship with Dwyer, saying: “I’ll have to ask Graham first, if he thinks it’s okay or not. I don’t know what to say.” 

Bizarrely, Victoria also hit the headlines last year when she accused Taoiseach Enda Kenny of stealing her breast pump.

“We are soulmates. I find him a very intriguing person. He is very honest"

In a recorded call to the Taoiseach’s personal mobile number, Enda was left speechless after he was told a Fine Gael party member stole the woman’s breast pump.

The Taoiseach’s mobile number had been posted online following his now-famous “call me” speech in the U.S. on the weekend of St Patrick’s Day.

During the call, the Kenny has to spend a couple of minutes trying to convince her that he is the real deal.

After he tells the woman she is through to the Taoiseach, she says: “This is not Enda Kenny.”

The Taoiseach then has to convince her he is not an imposter, saying: “It is actually. I am. That’s what I’m telling you, I’ve told you four times.”

At one point, a baffled Enda is left speechless after he is told a Fine Gael party member stole the woman’s breast pump. She says: “I am very, very angry at your government because a Fine Gael member stole my breast pump.”

On the first day of Dwyer’s high-profile murder trial, Victoria was removed from the court after Judge Anthony Hunt said he was unhappy with the gestures she was making towards the accused.
