FIVE members of the Russian nationalist motorcycle club Night Wolves laid wreaths at the Slavín memorial in Bratislava on the afternoon of May 2, accompanied by the Russian Ambassador Alexei Leonidovich Fedotov.
They were greeted by several hundreds of people, mostly pro-Russian, the Sme daily reported.
There have been serious concerns in the countries along the route concerning the ride of the Wolves. Although the members claim they are mere tourists and their ride is just a symbolic commemoration, some perceive the whole event as a provocation.
In Slovakia , 75 publicly known people have signed a letter from April 24, thus joining activists from other countries calling on Ukraine, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Poland, Austria, and Germany, to ban the members of the gang from entering their countries and to not allow them any public gatherings.
