A court in Russia jailed a paedophile for 17 years on Friday after he raped three of his partner's young relatives and then posted videos on the Internet.

Alexander Zuyev, 40, a resident of the Urals region of Udmurtia, around 1,100 kilometres east of Moscow, was convicted of raping his partner's eight-year-old daughter and eight-year-old niece.

He also forced his partner's 13-year-old nephew to engage in intercourse with the two girls and posted photographs and videos on the Internet in abuse that lasted from 2005-2007.

Russia in 2009 introduced harsher legislation on sexual offences against minors, raising the maximum sentence for child rape from 15 to 20 years.

Zuyev, who had a previous murder conviction, would be sent to a high-security prison, investigators said.
