WARSAW, April 27. /TASS/. Bikers from Russia’s Night Wolves club have reached the border with Poland on Monday. The bikers participating in the Moscow-Berlin motocross dedicated to the 70th anniversary of Victory Day are now undergoing border control procedures.
"Border guards will act in compliance with existing legislature," a press secretary of the border control department told TASS, adding that they will check the bikers’ documents.
Polish media reported earlier that border guards will scrupulously check every Russian on a motorcycle, look for Night Wolves badges in order to prevent bikers from the club from entering the country as individual motorcyclists.
According to a preliminary plan, participants of the motocross will head for Warsaw after crossing the border. In the Polish capital, they will lay wreaths at the Soviet Military Cemetery, at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and at the Volyn Park.
More than 100 Polish Katyn Raid bikers are waiting for Russian motorcyclists to cross the border. "If Russian motorcyclists are attacked, it will be a disgrace for us. In Poland, all bikers are our guests. We must help them and protect them," head of Katyn Raid biker club Viktor Vengzhin said.
On April 25, Russian motorcyclists started Moscow-Berlin motocross which will pass through Minsk, Brest, Wroclaw, Brno, Bratislava, Vienna, Munich and Prague.
The Polish authorities have not allowed Russian bikers from the Night Wolves club to ride through the Polish territory, saying the motocross represents "a political provocation."
The Polish Interior Ministry sent a note to the Russian Embassy in Poland "containing information on refusing entry to the territory of Poland to an organized group of motorcyclists, including representatives of the Night Wolves club."
President of the Night Wolves club Alexander Zaldostanov said this will not affect the motocross.
