A TEENAGE mum who let her baby boy starve to death while she went on a week-long bender with friends has been caged for six and a half years.
Vile Viktoria Kuznetsova, 17, from Rostov, Russia, showed no emotion as her sentence was read out in court.
Viktoria Kuznetsova was jailed for six-and-a-half years for allowing her baby to starve to death
The court heard that Kuznetsova had been planning to kill nine-month-old Egor when she started college.
She complained that the toddler kept her up at night and meant she couldn't go out partying with friends.
After her husband was called up for military service, Kuznetsova put baby Egor in a pram, locked the door and went off to see her friends.
She then spent the whole week partying and staying in college dorms while her baby slowly starved.
She returned once - but only to give some water to her dog, the court was told.
Jailing Kuznetsova, the judge said: "The cause of nine-month-old Egor's death was dehydration and starvation.
"When the baby was found inside Viktoria's house he was already dead, though his eyes were still wide open from terror."
"According to investigators the baby was literally skin and bones.
"An autopsy showed the baby's internal organs shut down one after another because of lack of food and water."
When police arrived at the mum's room the baby was already dead and rotting.
Police said Kuznetsova did not show any guilt and only cared about what would happen to her.
Now there has been a public outcry on social media over the leniency of her punishment.
Nanar Hachatryan posted: "She fed her dog, but not her baby, I am at loss of words. She has to be sterilised."
Another, called Mihail, wrote: "Six and half years for killing her baby? Are they crazy?"
It was previously reported that when the baby was just one month old, Kuznetsova had passed him to an orphanage - only for the organisation to return the baby to her when he was seven months old.
Her heartbroken husband was said to be seeking a divorce.
