Carobus, the Russia-based online shop, sells baby cribs looking like compact Buk missile launchers. The price of one item is 11,000 Russian rubles (roughly 175 U.S. dollars).

The designers also offer a license plate with the baby’s name – as a gift.

People who leave their comments online mostly disapprove the idea, calling the crib ‘trash’ and sarcastically asking whether it can down passenger planes.

As is known, Boeing 777 of Malaysian Airlines that was on its way from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, was downed over Donetsk region on July 17, 2014. 298 people were aboard; none of the passengers or the crew survived. The Ukrainian investigators who also looked into the tragedy said that the reason of the crash was the missile fired from Russian-made missile launcher Buk; one of such launchers - the same one that presumably hit the airplane - was used by Russian mercenaries in Donetsk region at the time.
