WARSAW, April 24. /TASS/. The Polish authorities have not allowed Russian bikers from the "Night Wolves" club to ride through the Polish territory in the framework of the Moscow-Berlin motocross dedicated to the 70th anniversary of Victory Day.
The decision comes in spite of Thursday’s remarks of Poland’s former Prime Minister Leszek Miller who called the step "a political paranoia."
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."
On April 25, Russian motorcyclists plan to start Moscow-Berlin motocross which will pass through Minsk, Brest, Wroclaw, Brno, Bratislava, Vienna, Munich and Prague.
"Poland’s foreign policy has recently become ridiculous," Miller, who is a leader of Poland’s Democratic Left Alliance, said, commenting on the situation around the motocross. "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 added.
"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.
President of the "Night Wolves" club Alexander Zaldostanov said this will not affect the motocross.
