The self-proclaimed girlfriend of murderer Graham Dwyer has said she would trust the convicted killer with her life.

Victoria Andreenkova (37) told 4FM's 'Niall Boylan at Night' show that she met the killer in the Midlands Prison and claimed they have kissed.

Ms Andreenkova described Dwyer as a "very, very kind human being" and maintained that the pair write to each other frequently and that he phones her most days.

"[We] love each other very much. We want a future together and that's what I'm aiming at," she said last night.

Dwyer is serving a life term for murdering childcare worker Elaine O'Hara in the Dublin Mountains on August 22, 2012. The 36-year-old's decomposed partial remains were discovered in September 2013. He is appealing the verdict.

Ms Andreenkova said she trusted Dwyer and felt he was being mistreated.

"I would like to spend my life with him if possible, but at the moment that's not possible," she said in the live interview.

"I don't see him as a convicted killer. He is Graham. I absolutely trust him. [I] trust him with my life."

Ms Andreenkova said Dwyer wanted to "keep his sex life private" and added she felt "he is being really unfairly treated in this country".

She also claimed the architect had lost a "lot of weight" as he did not like the prison food.
