Night Wolves organiser says members will mark Ostrava liberation

One of the organisers of the Russian motorcycle gang, the Night Wolves, has said members will be present in the city of Ostrava to market the 70th anniversary of the city’s liberation from the Nazis at the end of WWII. Andrei Bobrovsky made the announcement on the Russian radio station Govorit Moskva. Czech police, however, say they have no knowledge of any members of the motorcycle group, known as partisans of President Vladimir Putin, being on Czech soil. According to Russian news sources part of the Night Wolves contingent entered the European Union through Hungary and intend to regroup at Bratislava, Slovakia, and then head towards Berlin for the anniversary of the end of WWII in Europe. Poland said it would not allow the bikers to cross the country but Slovakia has said it will not bar them.
