HELSINKI, May 6. /TASS/. Finland has denied entry to a Russian biker. The border guard service has said the incident occurred at the Vaalimaa checkpoint last night.
"The decision was made on the basis of thorough analysis and after consultations with other Schengen countries. Earlier, the man was denied permission to enter Poland and Lithuania," the news release said.
The Finnish authorities have offered no official reason for their decision. As border guard spokesman Esa Veikkanen has told Yle TV, the Russian biker’s documents were in order and he had an effective Schengen visa.
The border guard service also acknowledged that the biker had no direct connections with Russia’s Night Wolves motorcycle club, which was in the news a lot of late following Poland’s controversial refusal late last month to let a group of Knight Wolves’ activists team up with Polish fellow bikers for a memorable ride across Europe timed for the 70th anniversary of the allied victory over Nazi Germany.
