    Russian Bikers' Victory Day Ride to Berlin (29)
    0 3810

    Poland has denied the motorcycle club "Night Wolves" entry as the Russian bikers had planned to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Soviet victory in the Great Patriotic War by organizing a journey from Moscow to Berlin.

    The Polish authorities made such a move despite the protest of the Polish "Katyn" motorcycle club that blocked the Terespol border in support of the Russian bikers.

    It seems that the peaceful motorcycle rally in memory of the 70th anniversary of the Soviet Union's victory over Nazi Germany in World War II sparks unhealthy paranoia in Poland.
