On Friday, The Wolves, vocal supporters of the country’s intervention in Ukraine and co-organisers of Antimaidan in Russia, have left Moscow; they are heading for Berlin hoping to get there on May 9, Russia’s Victory Day. To reach the destination, the group is to drive through Belarus, Poland, Slovakia, Czech Republic and Austria.
According to the club’s leader Alexander Zaldostanov aka Khirurg (Surgeon), in this way they pay tribute to the soldiers who won a victory over Nazi Germany.
“We want this motor race in honor of the victory to become a tradition,” Zaldostanov, Vladimir Putin’s close friend, said.
As was the case in 2015, the decision of the Polish authorities to deny them entry to the country set the leader of “The Night Wolves” back on his heels. According to him, if Poland does turn them down, they will choose another route. Watch the video of The Wolves in Belarus (ENG subs):
