BRATISLAVA, May 4. /TASS/. Bikers from the Russian Night Wolves club taking part in the "Roads of Victory - To Berlin" motorcycle rally laid wreaths to the Slavin monument to the Soviet liberators in the Slovakia’s capital Bratislava on Wednesday.
"The ceremony of honoring the memory of Soviet heroes was attended by more than 100 bikers. These are members of the club from Russia, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Poland and Germany," leader of the motorcycle rally Andrei Bobrovsky told TASS.
"Hundreds of ordinary Slovak citizens joined us. They remembered with gratitude about the sacrifice made for their freedom by the Soviet Union," he said.
More than 63,000 Red Army soldiers died liberating Slovakia. There are 160 memorial cemeteries in the republic. The largest of them is Slavin, a cultural and historic heritage site where 6,845 Red Army soldiers are buried.
The Night Wolves bikers will continue the motorcycle rally across Slovakia. They will visit the tombs of Soviet soldiers in Svidnik, eastern Slovakia, and Banska Bystrica, central Slovakia.
The bikers will leave Slovakia on Friday and will arrive in Austria’s capital Vienna on the same day. On May 7, they will honor the memory of Soviet soldiers in Prague and the next day will arrive in Berlin to celebrate May 9, the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany.
