MOSCOW, April 28. /TASS/. Russian bikers who are currently in the EU, along with citizens of other countries, will take part in the Moscow-Berlin motorcycle marathon dedicated to the 70th anniversary of Victory Day, marathon leader Andrey Bobrovsky told TASS on Tuesday.
"We made a decision to finish this marathon no matter what," Bobrovsky said. "If we are not let through, other bikers will ride. Night Wolves club is not two people, it include thousands of people. Many of them are already riding in Europe," he added.
Motorcyclists from other clubs, including bikers from other countries, may also take part in the marathon, he noted. "This idea is supported not only in Russia, but also in Poland, Belarus, Czech Republic," Borbovsky said.
He did not provide details of the new route. "This is classified information, so that no one can hamper us," he noted.
The Polish authorities have not allowed Russian bikers from the Night Wolves club to ride through the Polish territory, saying the marathon represents "a political provocation."
Germany earlier revoked visas of several participants of the motocross. Initially, the route lay through Minsk, Brest, Wroclaw, Brno, Bratislava, Vienna, Munich and Prague.
Russia’s Ambassador to Poland Sergey Andreev said earlier on Tuesday that Poland’s decision to deny entry to "Night Wolves" bikers will negatively affect bilateral relations between Warsaw and Moscow. "There were no grounds for such decision," Andreev told Rossiya 1 TV channel. "We regret that such a decision was made," he added.
"Of course, such situations cannot go unnoticed for our future relations," the diplomat noted. "The 70th anniversary of Victory Day and everything connected to it is definitely a very sensitive topic for us," he stressed.
