Representatives of the St. Petersburg society “Orthodox Union of Cossacks” prepared a personal “Oscar” for the Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio. In case if the actor doesn’t get the official award, DiCaprio will receive the award from the Cossacks.

According to the Cossack society, the talented actor has long been worthy of receiving the Oscar Statuette. The actor also is an honorary member of the Cossack society because he has Russian ancestry. Leonardo’s ancestors were forced to leave Soviet Russia after the revolution of 1917.

An alternative award for the actor was prepared in Yakutia. Oscar look alike statuette is holding a national Yakut vessel, that was made of the jewelry donated by 144 women.
