The b******!!!!!

It might be repairable though. If it helps the back of these does tend to pull out okay: did mine a couple of times whistle.gif

The good thing is the monocoque shape of the rear quarter panels and roof is really, really strong and so is unlikely to have distorted.

If he was a taxi, he must have insurance right? unsure.gif

If not you can get a hydraulic ram / sledgehammer and straighten out the panel behind the bumper to roughly the right place, weld up the splits and creases between boot floor, suspension turrets and that last panel. You *might* then be able to pop in a new tailgate and bodge on a new bumper. My rear bumper had blocks of wood bulking it out at the attachment points for several years.

It probably looks worse than it is. Take the rear bumper, tail gate and rear lights out. Then assess the damage to the car. I'm not sure what Russia is like for road worthiness but you could possible chain the rear of your car to a tree and give it a good yank!
