In Russia, luxury had been officially banned and had not been exhibited in public for over seventy years of communist regime. In the late 90s the Western media had relentlessly showsn excessive shopping habits of the new rich Russians and lavishly decorated stores filled with luxury items. Disturbing the bottom, with accents of Dostoevsky's Crime squads of bodyguards, armored cars and armed guards at the entrance of the temples of luxury shopping has only made their foolish spending even more entertaining for the West.
