From time to time, between friends, a joke that would like to pay something dear only with the use of coins.
The reasons can be many, like being angry with the brand or whatever. Of course, no matter what the person paying the consequences is an employee, a person like you.
It did not matter to this boy that, along with his friends, got the "feat" of filling a tub with rubles and take it to Apple's official reseller in Russia.
There are 100,000 rubles in the device, which translates to $ 1400, which means a cost of 256 GB iPhone XS on Putin's land.
