Motorcycle Stolen in Rome Turns Up in Russia

An Italian man has come to the southern city of Belgorod, near the Ukrainian border, to retrieve his Honda motorcycle which had been stolen in Rome several months ago, police said.

Nicolaie Sorin Vulpe's red motorcycle was discovered in a truck near Belgorod, the Interior Ministry said in a statement. Two weeks ago, Vulpe was notified by mail that his motorcycle had been found and that he could come and get it.

A video posted on the ministry's website shows the Italian happily embracing his bike, but he was unable to start it because the battery was dead.

Police say six motorcycles reported stolen in Italy and other countries have been recovered in the Belgorod region in the past half year.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
