GROZNY, August 25, 5:15 /ITAR-TASS/. Ramzan Kadyrov, the Head of Chechnya, reported in his Instagram page that he had been put on the list of members of the Nochnyye Volki (Night Wolves) motorcycle club.
Kadyrov received the Night Wolves club members, among them motorcycle club leader Aleksandr Zaldostanov (nicknamed Surgeon), in Grozny on Sunday night.
A branch of the Night Wolves club has appeared in the Chechen capital, Kadyrov related.
"I have been put on the list of Club members by a universal decision of Club veterans. They presented a Club bracelet to me in token of evidence of that," Kadyrov added.
The Night Wolves motorcycle club was established in 1989. The club held bike festivals and invited prominent rock groups to give performances.
At present the Club has branches in 33 cities of Russia, as well as in Belarus, Ukraine, Latvia, Macedonia, Serbia, Bulgaria, and Germany.
In March, the Night Wolves club members delivered humanitarian supplies to the Crimean Peninsula for the personnel manning checkpoints and for hospitals. They also arranged for a motor and motorcycling rally in support of residents of the Peninsula.
Russia's President Vladimir Putin repeatedly met with the Club members.
