Angry locals say a DAD who killed his “pedophile” friend after allegedly watching footage of his eight-year-old daughter being raped should “walk free”.
The 34-year-old Russian factory worker, who is currently in custody, has the backing of locals who believe he was only “protecting” his child.
Villagers and online commentators have now demanded that the father not face murder charges.
One said: “He is not a murderer – he protected his daughter and our children.
“Everyone is on his side.”
“All parents stand up for the pedophile killer,” said prominent TV journalist and former Russian presidential candidate Ksenia Sobchak.
Another commentator, Anna Plekhanova, said: “If the video turns out to be a crime, is the girl’s father wrong?
“Any ordinary parent, mother or father, would tear up such a pedophile on the spot.
“The protection of children is the direct responsibility of parents.”
His comments came as Oleg Sveridov, 34, faces charges of murder, 32.
Sveridov was considered a close friend and raised his daughter – allegedly sexually abusing her on several occasions.
The couple is believed to have been drinking together when the father saw the allegedly horrific clip on the man’s phone.
The sick father immediately confronted Sveridov, who fled before he could do anything.
All parents stand up for the pedophile killer.
The abuse was soon reported to local police, who began searching for Sviridov.
But the troubled father first managed to find him and stabbed him to death.
He claimed that Sveridov “stumbled with a knife during an argument” in the woods near his village.
The father has been taken into custody and the case is under investigation.
Criminal cases of alleged sexual abuse of three children filmed on Sveridov’s mobile phone have also been uncovered.
Sveridov’s mother said her son often worked as a nanny for the accused’s children.
He said the two were longtime friends.
