This is the moment a burly man thumps the back of a reversing car with his fist before the driver jumps out and knocks him down with one punch before stamping on his head.
The incident took place in the city of Feodosia on the Crimean Peninsula, annexed by Russia in 2014 but still recognised as an integral part of Ukraine by the United Nations.
In the footage, the burly man is seen walking on the pavement as a reversing car comes into view and appears to stop close to his feet.
Apparently angered, he thumps the back of the car with his fist, however he seems to check his phone when the driver jumps out of his seat and struts around the vehicle to punch him in the face.
The man falls to the ground and blood splatters are seen on the ground.
The aggressor shouts at him: “The car costs 650,000 RUB (7,500 GBP)! Why did you hit it?! Look at this dent now! Your life is worth nothing.”
He then appears to kick the man’s head several times before getting in his car, leaving the victim motionless on the ground.
According to local media, there have been no further updates on the victim’s condition. It is also unclear whether the aggressor will face punishment as no one has reported the incident to the authorities yet.
An anonymous netizen said: “If he thinks a car is valued higher than a person’s life, he needs to be isolated from society.”
‘Bim Bim Kununa’ commented: “There is no excuse for the driver who reversed on the pavement.”
