Russian photographer Evgen Knodakov has a collection of photos of supposed 1990s Russian criminals spending their leisure time. He doesn’t disclose his connection to the group rather that he was somehow very close to some of them. Many of the people on the photos are already dead – killed in the 1990s in criminal wars.

This is something new – dining tables in a theater to watch a boxing match – that’s how Russia was in the 1990s – it’s not possible now.
