Russian special forces have freed a seven-year-old boy who was kidnapped nearly two months ago in the Vladimir region.
In footage released by the Russian Investigative Committee, officers are seen detaining a 26-year-old man who is believed to have taken the boy and held him in a basement since September 28.
Footage shows officers cutting through a metal door to rescue the boy and arrest the suspect in the village east of Moscow.
The operation was coordinated by Interpol after officers in the US spotted a dark web user with a possible link to the abduction.
The child, who has not been named, has been reunited with his family, who say he is “healthy” and “doing well”.
The 26-year-old suspect has been arrested. The motive and circumstances surrounding the abduction are still being investigated.
