The mother of the baby, Viktoria Ivanova, 34, has spoken out about the “pain, despair, grief, and denial” she suffered from after her new born son Volodya was thrown to his death from a window of the hospital where he had just been born. The suspect, a 29-year-old GP named Dr Alina Araslanova, allegedly “threw” out little Volodya after giving birth herself the same evening. Araslanova was recovering in the maternity ward next to Volodya and his mother Viktoria Ivanova.
The GP has since been detained and her new born baby has been taken away from her, as investigators look into the motive behind the incident.
Ms Ivanova, who has two other children, has claimed that she’s forgiven Araslanova and is desperately trying to carry on for her kids.
However, she did say how in the aftermath of her baby’s death she and her husband had suffered “pain, despair, grief, and denial, we sobbed and couldn’t sleep at all”.
Ms Ivanova said: “Sometimes I wanted to follow [my baby] out of the window.
“And then we realised that in such a short period our Volodya had taught us to value and love even more.
‘Him, each other, and our children, and life in general.”
She continued: “We do not hold evil, and forgive everyone, the maternity hospital, the doctors and this deranged woman who was with me in intensive care”.
But six days after the incident, Ms Ivanova admitted her suffering has become even more acute.
“The hardest thing is to wake up in the morning and realise this is the reality,” she said.
“I try to hold on for the sake of our children, but it doesn’t always work out.
“Sometimes it seems that I cannot cope and I want to surrender.
“This feeling will not disappear, I will have to live with this all my life.”

Ms Ivanova added: “I have been killed with my child, I will never be the same.
“My children are deprived of a loved one, a little brother. I’m afraid to imagine what is happening inside my kids now – they know the whole truth.
“Everything we do in life has become so meaningless, the daily routine, work…”
Ms Ivanova and her husband Denis, a 36-year-old psychologist, initially came out to publicly forgive Araslanova, who allegedly threw Volodya from the third floor of a hospital in the Russian city of Sterlitamak.
However, now she’s been forced to ask: “Where were you God when all this happened?
“How do you allow such things in the world? Where do people come from who do such things? What is wrong with this world? I have no answers to these questions.”
Ms Ivanova also thanked the people who sent her messages of sympathy.
She said: “They are trying to somehow help my grief. Perhaps, all is not lost in this world. But I still cannot see anyone.
“My condition, both physical and mental, doesn’t allow it. But in time I must come out and talk to people, not to shut down.
“They say in 40 days it will become easier. For now, it’s hard to cope mentally with this.
“I miss my baby, I love him. I hope he is doing well there.”
In a post written two days after her baby’s death Ms Ivanova wrote: “the most important and sincere post in my life”.
She told how Volodya was a “very long-awaited baby for both me and my husband, and our children.
“We all wanted to have another child to increase the love and happiness in our family”.
Despite fears, her caesarean on August 16 had gone well and she called her husband and her other children to show him the new baby.
“And then, in tragic circumstances, we lost the baby. I do not want to describe in detail what happened.
“This can be read in all the news. It was the most terrible and nightmarish day in our lives.”
Ms Ivanova added: “We will not write a statement to the court, because our Volodya is about great and sincere love.
“Evil cannot be defeated by evil. I am so happy that I managed to take one photo of him as a keepsake.
“Today we said goodbye to our baby. Today we also mark our wedding anniversary.
“I am still a mother of three. It’s just that one of my children lives in my heart.
“Now we will live strong and happy, and in great love, for the sake of our Volodya.”
Araslanova has been reportedly detained for two months following a judge’s order.
She graduated from a medical university six years ago and has since worked as a GP.
She has a husband named Renat and a three-year-old daughter.
The suspect’s friend said: “She really loved her profession. She was always there to help.”
According to reports, the GP had suffered depression and was put under observation during her second pregnancy.
The Russian Investigative Committee said a murder probe was launched and that the suspect will face a psychological and psychiatric examination.
