Though the members of the Night Wolves were to come to Slovakia only on May 4, some of them published a photo from the Bratislava airport taken on May 2. It is not clear how they made it to the Schengen area after the Polish police stopped them at their borders, the Sme daily reported on its website.

“It is a secret,” Andrei Bobrovsky, who leads the group this year, told the TASS newswire. Since the official leader of Night Wolves Alexander Zaldostanov is registered on the sanction list, he is not allowed to enter the European Union, Sme wrote.

According to the original plan, the bikers were to enter Slovakia on May 4 and lay wreaths at the Slavín memorial in Bratislava. Subsequently, they were to visit the Dukla memorial, as well as a memorial in Banská Bystrica, and then return to Bratislava.

Bobrovsky said that currently there are some 20 bikers in Slovakia. They are to leave the country on May 3 to join a bigger group in Brno (the Czech Republic), who probably made it to the EU earlier, Sme wrote citing the ČTK newswire.

The Interior Ministry claimed it knows about the bikers and monitors them. According to its spokesperson Ivan Netík, the main group will arrive in Slovakia later, according to Sme.

The Night Wolves club is known for its Russian nationalism and open support for the annexation of Crimea or the pro-Russian separatist movement in eastern Ukraine. Its members claim about themselves that they are Orthodox, which distinguishes them from other motorcycle clubs involved in criminal activities, Sme reported.
