In the daily struggle against Russian troops, the Ukrainians again and again to creative methods.
The drone capabilities of the Ukrainian army have often been praised. Entire columns of Russian tanks were thus eliminated in an unconventional way.
Now there are pictures of a rather unusual new war vehicle: Ukrainian fighters use electric bikes to fight against Russian positions!

E-bikes from the Ukrainian brands “Delfast” and “ELEEK” are manoeuvrable, fast and one thing above all: particularly quiet. In this way, Ukrainians can hunt down their opponents and strike surprisingly.
In addition to being silent, bicycles have another – very important – advantage: they do not need fuel. Because it’s rare everywhere right now. Gas stations ration the sale of gasoline, especially in hotly contested areas.
E-bikes, on the other hand, only have to be recharged, which currently works without major problems.
“During the first weeks of the Russian invasion, Delfast provided the Ukrainian Armed Forces with two e-bikes for their needs,” spokeswoman Iryna Zaloha told BILD.
In addition, a bicycle “has been made available to volunteer paramedics for humanitarian needs in Kyiv”. For free, as Zaloha points out.
In fact, the bikes are also designed for city traffic. But: thanks to the deep tire profile, they are also suitable for off-road use – an advantage on off-road terrain where it is always muddy.
