Sick firms are cashing in on Mad Vlad’s bloodshed in Ukraine by flogging bullet and bomb-riddled war memorabilia.
Military uniforms – with bullet-holes, medals and shrapnel – as well as pieces of shattered buildings and remnants of downed fighter jets and helicopters are being offered for sale on sites including eBay.
One business, which we are not naming to avoid giving it publicity, advertises a Ukraine army vest topped with a rubber head of Russian leader Putin.

A sales pitch from the company says: “You will find on this page various Ukrainian militaria artefacts from various Ukrainian wars: Crimea war, Donbas conflict, war between Russia and Ukraine in 2022, WW1 and WW2.”
The firm, which invites visitors to its site to trade for them on eBay, also features an ad showing a “Ukrainian militaria dealer” posing with part of a Ka-52 helicopter.
The jackets and hats go for as little as £15 while fighter craft parts cost around £32.
Web users have slammed the sale of Ukraine war memorabilia as “sick” and “twisted”.
