    Members of the Russian "Night Wolves" motorcycle club laid a wreath at the Hero Monument of the Red Army in Vienna, Austria.

    The ceremony which took place on Saturday was attended by Russian Ambassador to Austria Sergei Nechaev.

    Two bikers participated in the ceremony. Nearly 500 visitors came to see the event. No incidents were reported.

    Earlier, members of the Russian biker club visited Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, where they laid a wreath at the Slavin war memorial. On Saturday, "Night Wolves" bikers came to the city of Brno, Czech, and two more bikers were allowed to enter Finland.

    Members of the motorcycle club planned to ride from Moscow to Berlin to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany in the Great Patriotic War. The route included such cities as Moscow, Minsk, Brest, Wroclaw, Brno, Bratislava, Vienna, Munich, Prague, Torgau, and Berlin.

    However, Polish border guards banned participants of the rally from entering the country. The Russian Foreign Ministry demanded that the Polish government explain the situation.
