An alleged Russian mafia godfather was gunned down as he threw a party to celebrate his release from prison.

Macabre footage captures how Alexander Zhestokov, 39, was approached by an assassin who opened fire from close range.

The suspected Siberian mobster collapsed on the floor and died almost instantly.

Zhestokov - rumoured to be a leader of the feared Zapsibovskie gang - had been hosting a party in Dzambul bar in the industrial city of Novokuznetsk, south-west Siberia.

He is seen talking to associates when the gunman approaches dressed in black with a hood and dark glasses, carrying a firearm with a large silencer.

CCTV video shows the moment the assassin pulls the trigger, unloading multiple bullets into the alleged mob boss.

Zhestokov falls onto the floor and appears to cover his face before falling still.

A friend turns his body so he is face down.

His associates appear shocked at first but within seconds of the contract killing they flee the restaurant in the Kemerovo region of Siberia, a major coal mining area.

Later his body is turned over and at least six bullet wounds are visible on his back.

Police have opened a murder probe.

The region's top policeman Major-General Igor Ivanov has taken personal control of the investigation, reports local media.

In early July, Zhestokov had been released from jail after serving a sentence for fraud and blackmail.

'Police are now locating the witnesses and studies the connections of the victim,' said a spokesman for the local Investigative Committee in charge of probing serious crime.

'Investigators are considering various versions of the murder including criminal links of the victim.'
