Several dozen members of the Russian motorcycle Club Night Wolves arrived in Bratislava on May 4. They laid wreaths at the Slavín memorial in Bratislava to commemorate Soviet soldiers who died in World War II.

They arrived in Slovakia from Brno in the Czech Republic and plan to stay until May 6. They will then continue to Berlin.

“We had no problems in the Czech Republic, but we had some in Poland,” Andrei Bobrovsky, who leads the group this year, told the ČTK newswire. He referred to the problem when some bikers were not allowed into the country by the border police.

The ceremony at Slavín was attended by several dozen people, including the Russian ambassador to Slovakia, ČTK wrote.

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.
