A father in Russia has been hailed as a “hero” for killing his friend — after allegedly seeing video of his 8-year-old daughter being raped by the acquaintance.

The 34-year-old factory worker, who was not identified, was drinking with his longtime pal Oleg Sviridov, 32, when he saw the horrifying footage on Sviridov’s phone.

He immediately confronted Sviridov, who ran away before he could act, the Australian news site news.com.au reported Saturday.

Sviridov had been a babysitter for the girl on numerous occasions and allegedly sexually abused her multiple times, the outlet said.

Police launched a manhunt for Sviridov but the furious father found him first and allegedly stabbed him to death.

The attacker claimed Sviridov “stumbled on the knife during a quarrel” in a forest near their village, The Sun said.

Police are also investigating the alleged sexual abuse of three other children filmed on Sviridov’s mobile.

Villagers and online commenters say the dad, who has been detained by police, is a hero and should not face murder charges, with one noting, “He is not a murderer — he protected his daughter and our children too. Everyone is on his side.”

Prominent TV journalist and former Russian presidential candidate Ksenia Sobchak said: “All parents are standing up for the pedophile’s killer.”

Sviridov’s mother said that her son had often been a babysitter for the accused man’s children.

The two men were longtime friends, she said.

“I don’t know how it got to this,” she said.

“He must have been drunk. Most likely he was drunk. They left their children with him all the time.

“When he babysat these girls he came back home as normal, in a good mood.”
