Doesn’t matter actually. Just visit any Moscow cemetery – from Vostryakovskoe to Vagankovskoe and youll find some gravestones with mersedeses constructed in the late 90-th. There was the same situation in the all ex-USSR except probably the muslim countires like Tajikistan, Kyrgistan etc.
Russian Criminal Word
I disagree with Anonymous in that it’s definitely not true for all ex-USSR countries. I live in Latvia, which was under illegal Soviet rule for 50 years. We still have a notable Russian minority living here, and the gravestones of their deceased are quite normal-looking. Apart from the language, they differ from Latvian ones with the small black-and-white portraits attached to them (not even etched into the actual stone) and the Orthodox crosses. There are definitely no pictures or sculptures of cars on them. Maybe it’s true for Slavic countries, though – I really can’t say, but it sounds possible. (Cue a Belarusian correcting me on this, haha.)
hey im from russia, and this is not fake, unfortunately…( too low level intelligence in russians minds….
Mostly S Class ;-)
Go To russia and will see that it is completely different
fake is only your nickname
As a hobbyist photographer from Latvia, I have seen a couple of similar gravestones, for example, in Riga Forest cemetery (Rīgas Meža kapi) and Bolderāja cemetery: both the etched photo and a car. Not a lot of them though, seemed to be around 1-2 per cemetery or so.
I think the last one is just a family crashed in that car accident
Bad taste is borderless
This is just a little part of the 90’s heritage. Basically who cares about the level of stupidity if one can make a year and a half income on such project. We are not talking about national heroes here. These people are criminals who were killed by other criminals. So why not make money on such morons and why not to lough at them.
Sorry forgot to sign my name, my clients used to call Aristotle, one more example of the total stupidity.
I this context, Mercedes S-class, BMW X6, even VOLGA, but how these boys will ride in Hell with Daewoo or Nissan Primera!?
Live in style, die in style.
Yep…just tried it..
Visit any Ukrainian (Bulgarian, Belorussian, Polish) cemetry and be astonished. Such gravestones seem to be a part of bandit culture, but not a Rusian one.
it’s not fake, it’s true! Russian mafia everywhere. perhaps drink vodka and walk the bear.
you stupid it is aint fake….
It is not fake. Believe me. I live in Moscow. )))
Naturally. 100% of the internet and up to 500% of tv is all fake. ignore it, and go outside and get a life.
When you die, yes I really want to remember what car I drove in my life..
I agree with Bobby Derp. I live in Estonia, yes, I have seen In Estonia some gravestones like those (of course, smaller) but names on those were russian.
It’s interesting situation in Russia. I was some times ago in Arab United Emirates. On 1971. they were totally poor country. Oil was dicovered in the same year. Now those cityzens are rich. Why russians wouldn’t live the some mood? AUE in very peaceful country, Russia is very aggresive. For whom is it good? Russia is totally unsccessful country for stupid politicans. Amazing!
Stones with cars??? What taste that is? Looks like no taste!
russian, ukrainian, azerbaidjany, moldovan. Former USSR rules!
but it will piss of religious morons. so it’s like a win win.
Must have been the cigarettes that killed them , nearly all are depicted as smoking ….lol
yeah right, you have nothing to eat, but you want to rule something. How typical for Russinas.
Hard to belive, that someone put this to his grave voluntarily.
Polish? Give me a break.
You can go, Not me bratan. Guess America is better:) For as long you’re not on Brighton Beach
Hey Anc ! compare the sizes of Arab Emirates and Russia, and think over it and if you understand something, read history, the bases of the economy and political science. How it is possible to compare two countries opposite different!!! it is so primitive. and we are not aggressive, you don’t know our wonderful people and our big soul! we protect our borders from NATO, only and everything, and that they show you in your pro-American news is a full nonsense)))) from Russia with love)
Tomas clearly hasnt been to Russia if he thinks we’re starving…well i guess thats whats shown on tv. and making fun of ones heritage is inpolite, every country has a dark chapter in their history, take Germany or Italy, the Nazi rule etc, nobody makes fun of that, times change. Yes some people in the 90s made a wrong choice, let them rest in peace…
Most of them from Ukraine. You may see it on the license plates of their cars. The last family died in car accident, this is obvious.
This is how we paying respect to the dead people! Don’t like when people chatting rubbish when they know **** all!
Then you go tell Them to take it Down Then
The artist creating these is the real gangster these are amazingly well done
I truly cannot recall a single time NATO threatened russia. For sure I know that Russia is a threat to any neighboring nation.
Russians ARE that stupid. it is not fake.
Hey, first of all learn how to spell Belarus. Country of Belarus and people who live and die there are Belarusian.
Secondly I do agree that those gravestones are a thing (comedically ongoing) of the Perestroika Bratva culture. Meanwhile majority of the bratva was Moscow based. Belarusian cemeteries have a few of those insane gravestones but a lot less compared to Vagankovo Cemetery. Poland was a lot less influenced by Perestroika and was “free” per say for quite a few years before Russia was. They had their own shit going on…
Also to everyone saying that it is fake…. What? I mean before I visited United States I was having hard time to believe how fat people really were… Well, y’all are fat.
But really though, y’all’s culture really lacks the part where shallow self representation and need to concur and own anything heart desires is important. In addition to their cars tall, skinny, blonde, big breasted women were also common accessories. As well as castle looking homes and vacation homes in Belize. Different cultures. Different customs. Strong gypsy and Mongolian influences throughout ages have influenced Russian and Eastern post-Soviet countries to strive for the bold, gold, bright. As all those things were unavailable during Soviet Union years. Everyone wore same gray coat and same shitty shoes as the neighbor.
here check out how bratva that didn’t get shot during the 90’s ended up now…http://englishrussia.com/2012/11/25/houses-for-moscow-elite-part-ii/
This madness comes from the nineties..
5th photo where the number 514-17АЕ, the number of Ukrainian machine, the machine in the picture is very cheap, the bandits on such did not go, it’s ridiculous.
that’s very funny… everyone put the car picture in grave stone… and another one make a sinister advice for ADIDAS …:))
I wouldn’t want to be a tie salesman in Russia..
Anonymous, that’s why you talking bullshit about Russia, coze u are in USA )) ahaha ))
These guys were taken money from richest were giving to poor people. I have a respect to them!
Did they bury the car too?
wow. they were so rich they had cars…
actually, i think youll find the rest of the world would disagree there and say that russia is a homophobic, overtly aggressive nation that likes to invade bordering countries at a whim. Has it never crossed your mind that your government, like all “democratic” governments feeds you lies and propaganda to keep you blind to the reality that less than 1% of russians control most of the countries wealth? Same with UAE. And **** the U.S, I want to live in a world with no war, not one where wars are created for profit by American AND European politicians looking to fill their and their friends coffers with the blood of innocent men women and children. Sometimes i genuinely ask myself if i want to live in a world where 1’s and 0’s on a screen are of an intrinsictly higher value than human life, and have decided that i dont, only to be saved by these people deemed expendable by a rich man who has never faced hardship in his life, but tells you what you should think and how you should live. i could go on and on about this…
More than half of them was gypsies
Tomáš – usially smart people always rule smth – you are not…rule and not.. smart
When you said smth stupid about “Russinas” you didn`t respect millions of people. And be a man – tell it to some of these guys :) – your grave will be somewere nobody knows about…
oi oi…. slow down. go out of your flat. leave the attitude there then come back a d start posting. carefull…bossy bit*h is here and she is going to teach you a lesson… that is how you’ve cane across like to me. anyone else? just chill. love russia. love life. peace!
Im having one of those bad boys
Nothing says gangster more than driving a Daewoo
Some are certainly good pieces, but many look second rate at best.
Downside of including any item of technology on your gravestone – you get a permanent engraving of an ancient mobile phone in an otherwise perfectly nice memorial.
I’ve lost gravestone interest.
You can’t bring $ with you but you can have a kick ass tombstone those are slick
I think it shows a great deal of love and respect, they are beautiful yes it’s diry money but , if I had that kind of money my mother and father would have a beautiful picture on there headstone!!! If they are real and I believe they are they are breath taking !!! They also are overboard in a world were people are going hungry, even here in America were we waste money on a lot dumber things than showing respect, even to the living!!! Everyone seams to have something bad to say about other peoples countries, there is good and bad everywhere, these people had each others back no matter what, can you say that about your family and friends??? If they are in hell then they will pay there dues for eternity, a lot longer than that stone will last !!! I live in America and I must say other cultures have headstones that are a lot nicer than ours , it’s all a waste of money one day they will fade and no one on this earth will remember you !! Respect people more as they live than when they are dead , that will show more respect than a fancy head stone !!!
I am a salesman in Russia for about 20 years. And I love it haha.
The stupidityin other countries isn`t less than this. And at the same time we`re the country of great brains and talents too. We`ve got self-irony either. By the way: isn`t it strange the dates of their deaths the end of 199…. and 200…. It`s the end of USSR, a difficult period of mafia`s flourish.
If you believe in the Christ who died upon it, it can.
I don’t speak Russian, but are a lot of these gangsters Jewish ?
I was thinkin’ ac dc… Highway to hell :)
there is a Russian saying: Daddy loves tea hot mom loves standing.
no accounting for tastes. some people have their own cockroaches in my head
Most of them are not Russians. They are jewish, jipsies, ukrainians, tatarians, kazakhs, caucasian and so on, and so for. In 90s there was burst of ethnic mafia.
Who cares what they did with money! I personally think these headstones are rather nice. There is nothing wrong with they way they look.
This is incredible. Always and forever gangsters, even after death.
