WARSAW, April 26. /TASS/. Russian motorcyclists are entering Poland individually or in groups of two via different border crossing points, Poland’s RMF FM radio said on Sunday, adding that there might be Night Wolves club bikers who have been banned to ride via Poland.
The radio said several bikers had been seen at a checkpoint in Terespol and two more - in Slavutych, all having valid Schengen visas. However, the radio said it was not certain these bikers were Night Wolves members.
Agnieszka Golias, a spokesperson for the border service, said many Russian motorcyclists enter Poland, but none of them are members of the Night Wolves club.
The Night Wolves biker club had planned to begin their journey on April 25 in Moscow and to finish it in Berlin on May 9 marking the 70th anniversary of the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany by riding through Minsk, Wroclaw, Brno, Bratislava, Vienna, Munich and Prague.
However, the Polish authorities said this ride was a "political provocation" and banned entry to the country to Night Wolves bikers, citing some formal reasons as a pretext. German media said entry visas of some of the participants in the ride had been annulled.
Night Wolves leader, Alexander Zaldostanov, known as Surgeon, said earlier visa problems would not hamper the ride. A number of Polish organizations, including the Union of Democratic Leftist Forces, pledged to support the Russian bikers and join their ride.
