In Tbilisi, activists of the NGO ‘Free Zone’ forced Russian bikers to cut their Saint George’s ribbons from their bikes.
“They were forced to cut ribbons with their own knives, and were forbidden to use these ribbons in Georgia,” said activist of the Free Zone Farnaoz Chkadua, Georgia Online reported.
The publication notes that among those who made the Russian bikers remove the ribbon was Irakli Kantariya — grandson of the legendary Meliton Kantaria — one of those who hoisted the Victory Banner over the Reichstag.
Soon afterwards Georgian police officers arrested the activists who forced the bikers to cut off their ribbons. They were taken to an undisclosed location but later all were released.
It is reported that another group of Russian bikers is heading towards Georgia from Tambov, Russia.
