Czech police say they have registered the presence of several members of the Russian Night Wolves bikers club in the Czech Republic. Several of them reportedly attended Thursday’s remembrance events in Ostrava marking the end of WWII. However no motorcycle convoy has been sighted and it appears that some of the club members are undertaking the ride through Europe by car. The Night Wolves, who are said to be close to Russian President Vladimir Putin, announced their intention to ride through Belarus, Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and Austria and reach Berlin by May 9 to commemorate the victory of Russian troops over Nazi Germany 70 years ago. However the ride evoked controversy and Poland denied them entry. The Czech traffic police said it would closely observe their movements in the country.
