Want to show your support for Vladimir Putin at the start of his latest tenure as president of the Russian Federation, comrade? No problem: There’s a app custom-made iPhone for that.

Created by luxury phone customizer Caviar, the Putin-promoting iPhone X (nicknamed the “Golden Age”) is embellished with 24-karat gold and boasts the visage of Putin himself. At the bottom of the iPhone, in Russian, it reads: “We are committed to the best future. And we will achieve it.”

This limited-edition phone can be yours for the bargain price of between $4,700 and $5,000, depending on which storage options you want. On the plus side, you get free shipping!

Caviar has long created custom Apple devices for the Russian market. For instance, back in 2013 it created an 18-karat gold-plated iPhone 5s boasting an etching of Putin, the Russian coat of arms and the first two lines of the Russian national anthem. Later on, the company produced an iPhone 6s, complete with titanium finish, gold re-creation of Putin’s chiseled face, velvet wooden collector’s box and “free” car charger.

Recently, Caviar even created a Donald Trump iPhone — if you fancy getting a companion piece for the Putin model.

If you want to get hold of the Putin iPhone, you can get it through Caviar’s website. You may want to head over there quickly, though, since there are only 76 units available. (That number mirrors the percentage of the population that reportedly voted for Putin during the latest election.)

Caviar will even throw in a complimentary gift box as part of the deal. Can’t say fairer than that!
