This is the sickening moment a dad appears to light up a cigarette for his tiny son.
The disturbing footage show the man leaning across the kitchen table and showing the naked child – who appears aged only two or three years old – how to puff away.
In the background a woman, possibly the child’s mother, is heard to giggle uncontrollably as the boy blows out smoke in a bid to impress the adults around him, who seem oblivious to the health risk.
The footage is understood to have been taken in Russia, where campaigners have claimed child smoking is rife and recent studies have shown 40% of the adult population are regular smokers.
One furious viewer, who spotted the clip on US site Ninemsn, said: “This is child abuse, what else do they teach this child.”
Another raged: “They do not deserve to be parents when there are decent human beings out there who cannot have children.”
The clip dates back to 2008 but since being posted online this week has caused a huge backlash.
