BRATISLAVA, May 6. /TASS/. Russian bikers from the Night Wolves club participating in the Moscow-Berlin marathon dedicated to the 70th anniversary of Victory Day have laid wreaths on graves of Russian soldiers buried at Olsany Cemetery in Prague on Wednesday.
"Six Russian motorcyclists and 30 friends from the Czech Republic, Germany and Macedonia accompanying the Night Wolves along the Victory route have participated in the ceremony. Around 200 Czech public activists and compatriots came to support the bikers," Russian Embassy in the Czech Republic first secretary Anatoly Tomnikov told TASS.
Motorcyclists also plan to lay wreaths to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Vitkov hill and meet Czech veterans in Prague. On Thursday, they will already be in Germany. "The Czech capital became one of the last stops on the way of the Night Wolves to Berlin, where on May 9 they will pay tribute to the memory of Soviet soldiers defending Nazism at Soviet War memorial in Treptower Park," Tomnikov said.
On April 25, bikers from Night Wolves club started their Moscow-Berlin motorcycle marathon dedicated to the 70th anniversary of Victory in World War II. The planned route will pass through Minsk, Brest, Wroclaw, Brno, Bratislava, Vienna, Munich and Prague. On April 27, the bikers were denied entry to Poland. The Polish Foreign Ministry said the reason for denying entry lay in "lack of necessary concrete information about the group’s plans on the territory of Poland." Germany earlier revoked visas of several participants of the marathon. The bikers later entered Poland, but refused to provide any details.
