Putin's biker gang lends muscle to rebel cause in east Ukraine

Pro-Russian bikers park their motorcycles in front of the City Hall on Simferopol's Lenin Square, on March 14, 2014Dressed in leathers and camouflage, motorbike gang leader Vitali waves at two charred Ukrainian tank turrets decorating the entrance to his club as he recounts how his group has fought alongside pro-Russian rebels. The biker — also known by his nickname “Prosecutor” — is boss of the east Ukraine branch of the Night Wolves motorcycle gang, a collection of Kremlin-loving toughs originally created in Russia that boasts close ties to President Vladimir Putin. Vitali says the shattered tanks were destroyed by his men during a battle with government troops in Khryashchuvate, a village close to Lugansk that now lies largely in ruins.
