The incident happened in the town of Magadan, the region of the Northeast Siberian Taiga in Russia.
In the footage, we see the money lender battering the cowering victim with a metal pipe as the man begs for mercy and wails in agony.
In the clip, we see the attacker repeatedly hitting the man at full-force in front of a woman – reportedly his girlfriend.
