On Saturday, Putin attended the 10th “Shadow of Babylon” international bike show organized by the patriotic motorcycle group Night Wolves in Sevastopol. He was riding an iconic Soviet-made Ural sidecar motorcycle.
The first such complaint was filed by a lawyer from Vladivostok, Maxim Chukhunov to the Sevastopol traffic police. According to his complaint, Putin “was seen riding a bike in the company of unidentified individuals”. He demanded that Putin be fined 1,000 rubles (EUR 13) for not wearing a helmet.
The Federal Protective Service (FSO), the state agency tasked with the protection of high-ranking officials said that on the road stretch in question public traffic rules did not apply at the time.
