M69 pattern, mind you he's got all the gear there.

That particular seller is a little sharp quite often...

Agree with you there kozlov he dose have quite alot of authentic kit, but it just gets me when people wrongly advertise things in an atempt to sell them.

All that said, there are still people out there willing to get fooled by such scams! Claiming that the pattern of tunic and or trousers is "virtually" the same as the wartime ones...even the meshok backpack...but upon closer inspection faults begin to arise!

He also has a lot of modern Ukrainian stuff which he claims is Cold War Soviet...

Like I said, he does have some gems, but also he is a bit dishonest with his descriptions - I've spoken to him a few times and its not that he is ignorant of the facts so it really is dishonesty...

www.Soviet-Power.com is also him btw...

And the sad fact is that hes almost certainly not the only dishonest seller on ebay,you would think ebay would have a rule against that, they seem to have rules for every thing else :)

But that increases ebay sales and therefore ebay revenue, of course its not against their rules!

I dunno $40 for a pair of sapogi isn't a bad price.

Having said that I'd go to Front of Russia even with the WU charges because I know Alex can be trusted.

There's alot of faults in the feedback system i'm afraid.

Too many bidders who win & don't pay & E Bay does nothing about it.

You look at a bidder's feedback & it say's 100% despite the twenty or so non payment's they have!

Violations of freedom of expression often go hand in hand with other violations, in particular the right to freedom of association and assembly.
