BERLIN, May 9. /TASS/. Bikers from Russia’s Night club on Saturday laid flowers to memorials to Soviet warriors in Berlin, a TASS correspondent reported.
They were met by applause and shouts "Well done!" from people who gathered in Treptower Park to honor the memory of those fallen during the Great Patriotic War.
The Great Patriotic War is a term used in Russia and other former Soviet republics to describe hostilities on the eastern fronts of World War II in 1941-1945.
"The way to Berlin was complicated, we were going to Germany using various means, some people were stopped, not let go," a participant of the motorcycle rally named German, from the Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod, told TASS.
"For example, I got here via Turkey and Greece," he said.
Dozens of bikers from different countries, including Germany, Macedonia, Poland and Serbia, gathered in Treptower Park. Many of them were reluctant to speak to journalists because reporters "often misinterpret our words," according to a biker from Thuringia.
Night Wolves members left Moscow on April 25, embarking on a biker rally timed to the 70th anniversary of the Soviet Union’s Victory over Nazi Germany in World War Two. Their route was to pass through Minsk, Brest, Wroclaw, Brno, Bratislava, Vienna, Munich, Prague and end in Berlin.
From the start, the bikers faced difficulties. Poland banned entry for Night Wolves, and Germany annulled visas for some of the club’s members. Nevertheless, some members of Night Wolves managed to reach Berlin.
