Nothing says class like a tombstone showing you with your pimped out car and listing your mafia name. The Yekaterinburg cemetery isn’t limited to just one or two of these trashy graves though, it’s filled with multiple deceased mafiosos:

Very expensive tombs, black marble, precious stones, laser-engraved images and life-size granite gravestones are common here. The nicknames of the deceased mobsters are engraved along with some of the things they were known for: He was an expert in using knifes.
