WARSAW, April 27. /TASS/. Poland has blocked ten Russian bikers on a ride to commemorate the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany from entering the country over national security threat, the spokesperson for the Russian embassy in Warsaw said on Monday.
"Each of the Russian bikers was given the entry ban explanation referring to the law on foreigners which allows to deny entry to persons who may pose threat to public order and national security," Valeria Perzhinskaya told TASS.
She denied Polish media reports that the bikers from the Night Wolves group had visa problems.
After spending hours at Poland's Terespol border crossing the bikers returned to the Belarusian city of Brest located near the Polish border.
The Russian bikers left Moscow on April 25. They were due to travel through Minsk, Brest, Wroclaw, Brno, Bratislava, Vienna, Munich and Prague before reaching Berlin on May 9, Victory Day.
