Jealous lover kidnaps his ex-wife and drags her off inside suitcase for a ‘romantic date’ in the forest

A man kidnapped his ex-wife at knifepoint and stuffed her inside a blue sports bag before dragging her to a forest for a "romantic date".

Video footage below shows "jealous" Yaroslav Fokin, 35, a former Special Forces officer wheeling silver medalist runner Elena Rukhlyada, 34, out of her flat in Novosibirsk, south Russia.

Fokin carefully wheeled the bag to the carpark before driving off to a far off forest, where he released her and gave her a bouquet of flowers during the bizarre "romantic date".

Police later found the athlete unharmed after she was reported missing and arrested Fokin. He was found guilty of kidnapping by the Zaeltsovsky District Court and is currently serving a four-and-a-half year sentence in an exceedingly maximum-security prison.

Elena, who won a silver within the 2011 Mountain Running World Championship, has now recounted her terrifying ordeal at the hands of her ex-husband.
