The 35-year-old attacked her son after reportedly failing to withdraw money from an ATM.

It is understood the woman was angered after her account had insufficient funds.

A CCTV camera at the Labytnangi city supermarket, in the Urals region of the country, recorded the woman kicking her son to the ground.

The six-year-old by is kicked in the stomach, before a passer-by attempts to intervene.

The woman is then seen bringing her son outside and throwing him on the ground, before the passer-by intervenes again.

The incident occurred in November, but has caused outrage online after the footage was released yesterday.
