On Friday afternoon, the regular flight from Moscow touched down in the Crimean capital of Simferopol, in the south of Ukraine, carrying the leader of a Russian motorcycle gang known as the Night Wolves. Alexander Zaldostanov, an old friend of Russian President Vladimir Putin, was wearing his usual get-up a flaming wolfs head stenciled onto his black leather vest but for once he was not the most intimidating figure on the scene

We have one goal here, Zaldostanov tells TIME on Friday night, a few hours after arriving in Sevastopol. We are here to defend our country, or at least the parts of it that remains ours. We will defend it from the fascists who have come to power. So let it be known to all of them. Wherever we are, wherever the Night Wolves are, that should be considered Russia.
Would be hilarious if Putin continued to send more and more troops, and they wouldn’t stop until reaching the Western side of Portugal, in a modern form of Blitzkrieg. They’d probably go through Europe like a hot knife through butter. LOL
Were that to happen, 0bama would lock himself up in the ‘Clinton Closet’ off the Oval Office and wouldn’t come out until it was over.
Last July, Putin even kept Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich waiting for four hours while he had met with Alexander Zaldostanov, the tattooed head of the Night Wolves known as The Surgeon. And earlier this year, Putin awarded Zaldostanov the prestigious Order of Honour for his “active work in patriotic upbringing of the young” and for helping search for the remains of missing World War II soldiers.
Ahh.here is the significance of the Night Wolves showing up in the Ukraine.
Wow! Thanks for the enlightening post. Why am I not shocked?
Just a quick search doesnt show a picture for the former Night Wolves leader.
Also, can’t find how or why he was replaced with Putin’s friend
Alexander Zaldostanov is an imposing figure.
Oops Weitz isnt THE leader..Just A leader
A grappling hook, a rope ~and~ a step ladder.
[I’ll find a way up there, somehow!]
Can you imagine the puddle at the feet of Obama or Biden if they ever actually met one of these guys?
All in fine health I see, a walker and a cane. Yep, they are bikers alright. Awesome
I have a lot of one-legged biker friends.
The asphalt is unforgiving.
Well this is really kind of nice;
” In an act of patriotism they have changed all the words on their leathers from Latin lettering to a gothic Cyrillic.
One of the Hells Angels symbols, a 1 per cent inside a diamond, is still etched on a great stone at the entrance to their kingdom.
In Hells Angels lore it stands for the 1 per cent who are outlaws.
But the Night Wolves have engraved a new text around the diamond, transforming its meaning: In heaven there is more joy at the 1 per cent of sinners who confess than the 99 per cent who have no need of salvation.”
Yes, I am very familiar with it.
