Cossacks on motorcycles

“Russia’s Friends Form New ‘Cossack Army’ in Balkans”

“The solemn ceremony was presided over by Serbian Orthodox priest Momchilo Krivokapic and a phalanx of bikers from the pro-Kremlin Russian motorcycle gang Night Wolves -- whose leader, Aleksandr Zaldostanov, is close to President Vladimir Putin.”

The St. Sava Cossack Stanitsa “was formed in 2011 by the Russia-based Central Cossack Army, whose commander is appointed directly by Putin. The Serbian affiliate declares on its website that Western values are ‘distant and foreign’ to Serbs and that ‘Putin's Russia is like a beacon in the darkness surrounding the peoples of the Balkans.’"
