MOSCOW, April 27. /TASS/. The Russian Foreign Ministry demands explanations from Warsaw over its denial of entry to Russian bikers from the Night Wolves club, the ministry said in a statement.

"On April 27, a group of Russian motorcyclists who planned to pay tribute, shortly before the 70th anniversary of the Victory, to the memory of Soviet warriors who had died when liberating European states from fascism were denied entry to the Polish territory via the Brest-Terespol border crossing point," the statement said.

"We are demanding explanations from the Polish authorities and decisively condemn their actions testifying to the readiness to rewrite history and in essence blaspheme, for opportunistic reasons, over the feat of those who saved Poland and the world from fascism," it said.
