Putin joins biker fest in Sevastopol

An annual motorbike festival taking place in the city of Sevastopol has seen a surprise visitor. Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has turned up, riding a Harley Davidson Trike in front of the participants.

Vladimir Putin looked happy and said he enjoyed sharing his passion for steel and wheels.

Thousands of riders and spectators are camping in the city for two days of two-wheeled action.

This year’s show is being held for the 14th time and is dedicated to the 65th anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany and features war-time motorcycles. A commemoration ceremony will also be held to remember the defenders of Sevastopol.

Sevastopol also hosted last year’s gathering, which attracted 5,000 bikers.
