The leader of the Polish bikers club ‘Rajd Katynski’, Wiktor Wegrzyn, will together with his club support the Russian bikers who are planning to drive through Poland.
The members of the Russian bikers club ‘Night Wolves’ plan to ride through Poland on a journey to Berlin to mark the 70th anniversary of the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany.
About 40 participants will leave from Moscow on April 25. They plan to drive through Minsk, Brest, Wrocław, Brno, Bratislava, Vienna, Munich and Prague. The journey is to end on May 9 in Berlin, where the bikers will lay flowers at the monument to the Soviet soldiers in Treptower Park in Berlin.
Poland’s prime minister has spoken out against the plan. The German newspaper Die Welt previously reported, citing a source in law enforcement, that the authorities will not permit the Russian bikers to spend May 9 in the German capital.
But despite all that, Czech media reported that immediately after the news of the Russian ‘Night Wolves’ passing through European countries was spread, it generated avid debate on social media.
In the first three days the ‘Night Wolves’ received support from over 1,620 readers. On the contrary, several opponent groups in the Czech Republic and Slovakia expressed their intention to organize protests on their route.
