This $4,360 gold-plated iPhone 5s comes with the face of Vladimir Putin engraved on its back side
Russian president Vladimir Putin probably won’t be winning international popularity contests any time soon, but there must be people in Russia who love him. For them, Italian luxury brand Caviar / Perla Penna recently launched a gold-plated iPhone.

Called “Caviar iPhone 5S Supremo Putin”, the new gold-plated smartphone costs around $4,363, and is available to buy only in Russia. The face of Vladimir Putin is etched on the gold-plated back case of this iPhone, and so is Russia’s coat of arms. According to Caviar, the new luxurious handset is a “presidential accessory for people of a higher range.” Well, we can’t imagine someone else would buy it anyway.

The Caviar iPhone 5S Supremo Putin comes in its own specially crafted box, and you can take a look at it in the slideshow below. Of course, despite its expensive coating, this is still just an iPhone 5s that'll work like any other iPhone 5s.

Why are you defending Putin by bringing arguments about Obama? If I'm saying something bad about Putin it is not necessary means that I'm Pro American! You should understand that world is bigger than USA or Russia and there is not only two sides Pro Americans and Pro Russians. So if someone is saying something bad about U.S. it is not necessary that he or she is Pro Russian and opposite if someone is saying something bad about Russia it is not necessary that he or she is Pro American!

If I see something good about USA I will not deny that and if I see something bad about USA I will not deny that also. Same with Russia if I see something bad about Russia I will not deny that and if I see something good about Russia I will not deny that also.

"Obama is not bulls**t ??"

And what if I will say that Obama is a bad person does that means that Putin is no longer the bad person? Don't be childish!

"Hi is a strong leader..."

He is a strong leader for his oligarchs but for simple people he does nothing.

"...not US ass licker like all East Europe became."

And you are very unhappy because East Europe don't kiss Putins ass right?

Who we?

"and have business with countries that r good for us..."

Independent countries themselves decide what they want to listen russia likes it or not. ;)

For example my country 24 years ago decided that do not want to have nothing common with russia.
