MOSCOW, April 15. /TASS/. Polish radicals tried to disrupt preparations for the Roads of Glory motor rally, the deputy chief of the voluntary society for assistance to the army, the air force and the fleet (DOSAAF), Sergey Klimov, has said.
"Regrettably, when we were exploring the likely route, Polish extremists caused problems," Klimov told a news conference at TASS on Wednesday.
"Our embassy and the Defense Ministry have been doing their utmost to ensure the event be a success," he said.
The original plan was the motorcade would include 30 vehicles. By now it has grown to 40.
"Many Polish organizations have welcomed the idea of the rally, and some have said they will join in," Klimov said.
According to earlier reports, the motorcade will leave Moscow on April 18. Its route lies through Russian and Belarusian cities. It will cross the borders of Poland and Germany to cross the finish line in Torgau, Germany. The DOSAAF society of applied military and technical sports has said the authorities of Germany and Poland have already made arrangements for letting the rally cross their territories.
The convoy will include DOSAAF vehicles and well as those contributed by non-governmental organizations of Belarus and Poland, and enthusiasts from Germany, Britain, the United States and some other countries.
