    Russian President Vladimir Putin is known for his varied and extraordinary skills: he shoots guns, hunts, has a black belt in Karate, flies planes, and he rides bicycles.

    Putin arrived at the "Shadow of Babylon" international bike show, organised by the Night Wolves biker club, in Sevastopol, Crimea, driving a Ural motorcycle.

    His passengers were the head of Crimea Sergei Aksenov in a motorcycle carriage and interim Governor of Sevastopol Mikhail Razvozhaev.
