BERLIN, May 3. /TASS/. A group of Russian bikers from the Night Wolves club, who are on a motorcycle marathon dedicated to the 70th anniversary of Victory in World War II, have been stopped in Germany to have their documents checked, Alexander Shapovalov, a member of the club, told TASS on Sunday.
"We are now some 50 kilometres away from Munich. We were stopped two hours ago and they have been checking our documents for all this time," he said, adding he saw around 30 policemen and dogs. "There is understanding that the documents are OK. They must be waiting an order from superior authorities," he noted.
He did not say how many bikers had already crossed into Germany from Austria. "There are one bike and one auxiliary car here," he said. The DPA news agency however cited a police source as saying there were about ten Russian bikers in Germany.
Shapovalov said the Night Wolves hoped to get to Munich soon to visit the Dachau Memorial on Monday.
