'Night Wolves' gang once again attempts to reach Berlin on a 'second world war victory tour'
Lithuanian border guards blocked two Russian bikers trying to enter the Baltic country via Belarus, Delfi reports. Two men could neither explain their reason for entering Lithuania nor produce any required documents. One of the motorcycles had a Soviet star on it, a symbol prohibited in Lithuania.
Border guard spokesperson said that according to preliminary information, the same men were banned entrance to Lithuania last April. Then, a group of 10 Russian bikers was denied entry to Lithuania and Poland.
On April 29, Polish authorities refused entry to a group of 'Night Wolves' bikers. Polands' Ambassador to Russia was later summoned over the move.
In March, members of the Russian motorcycle club 'Night Wolves', known for its support of Russian President Vladimir Putin, announced they will be travelling from Moscow to Berlin in order to commemorate the 71th anniversary of the allied victory over Nazi Germany, despite they were banned entry to some E.U. countries last year.
