A mum confessed to seeking to sell the virginity of her 13-year-old daughter to a wealthy man in Russia.
The police detained 35-year-old Irina Gladkikh, an estate agent and her female friend after a sting operation by detectives.
The pair had flown to Moscow from Chelyabinsk with the underage girl in order to sell her 'first night' to a 'rich client' for £19,100.
In a shocking confession video released by the Russian Interior Ministry, the mum admits during interrogation that she had flown in to Moscow with her underage daughter to get to know a rich man in order to get financial help for providing sexual serviced by the daughter.
The friend, 25, confessed the aim was 'selling the right to have the first night' with the girl. The mother and her friend were detained in a sting operation at a floating restaurant in Moscow.
The mother was unaware that she was dealing with police officers in disguise as she made the deal to sell her daughter's virginity and was detained after receiving the cash - one and a half million roubles - for the underage girl to have sex with a wealthy businessman.
The girl was immediately taken into care, and admitted initially to a Moscow hospital.
Law enforcement sources alleged Gladkikh, who also has a young son, and her friend 'earn their living by selling their own bodies'.
The mother's social media indicates she is an estate agent in the Urals city and was previously a beauty pageant contestant in Chelyabinsk, it was reported.
