Ms Osokina’s husband Alexey said: ‘She called me herself saying a man set fire to her.

‘I was on a business trip. The police have not called me yet. I do not know the suspect.’

He was waiting at his wife’s hospital but had not been allowed to see her, he said.

Regional health minister Oksana Melekhova called it a ‘flagrant crime’.

‘Doctors are doing everything they can to save the victim’s life,’ she said.

Mazzherov is under criminal investigation for ‘attempted murder with particular cruelty’.

If convicted he could face up to 15 years in prison.
