While customs across the globe are hard at work trying to intercept fake goods most often produced and shipped from China, in Russia they keep themselves occupied with finding new ways to dispose of the fake items once they have them.

In the video below can be seen how one government employee uses a bulldozer to dispose of hundreds of copied iPhones imported from China.
The man goes back and forth over the iPhone with his industrial machinery, grinding them into bits. Eventually he gathers them in a pile of dirt and ‘buries’ them in a mass-grave.
Russia’s solution to dispose of fake iPhones seems obvious and is most definitely permanent but is time consuming and labor intensive: although it takes just one man riding a bulldozer to destroy the fake goods, it takes five men to cut open the boxes and place the cell phones on the ground.
