WARSAW, April 23. /TASS/. Leader of Poland’s Democratic Left Alliance Leszek Miller has spoken Thursday against banning Russian Night Wolves biker club from riding through the country in the framework of the Moscow-Berlin motocross dedicated to the 70th anniversary of Victory Day.
"Poland’s foreign policy has recently become ridiculous," Miller said, commenting on the situation around the motocross scheduled to start on April 25. "The latest example of this is a grotesque discussion around "Night Wolves’. It turns out Poland is afraid of 30 motorcyclists," he noted. "The Polish authorities are acting like a tank division is about to enter the Polish territory, and not some 30 Russian motorcyclists," Miller, who served as the country’s prime minister in 2001-2004, said.
"It is shameful and humiliating. This is hysteria and political paranoia. ‘Night Wolves’ are not a threat to Poland. Poland is threatened by inept government, foolishness, poverty, unemployment, queues to doctors, mass migration and general disorder in our own country," the politician stressed.
Night Wolves plan to ride through Minsk, Brest, Wroclaw, Brno, Bratislava, Vienna, Munich and Prague.
