The Ukrainian roofer who climbed a Moscow landmark skyscraper to paint a Soviet star in his country's blue and yellow colors is auctioning off the clothes he wore during the dangerous stunt.
Pavel Ushivets, better known by the nickname Mustang Wanted, told a Ukrainian television channel his sneakers were likely to fetch the highest price out of all the items of clothing and bidding would start at $8000, tabloid LifeNews reported Monday.
The lucky bidder would only get one blue-and-yellow stained shoe for his cash since the roofer is planning to send the other half of the pair to Russia's Investigative Committee as a memento, he said.
Previously, the daredevil sold footage of the stunt to News Media, a private holding in Russia and owner of pro-Kremlin tabloid Lifenews, and used the money to fund the Ukraine army.
It is unclear whether the proceeds of the auction will go to a similar cause.
Russian authorities have issued an international warrant for his arrest on charges of vandalism and hooliganism for covering the star on top one of Moscow's Stalin-era Seven Sister skyscrapers in Ukraine's national colors and draping a Ukrainian flag from its spire.
