The Night Wolves, a Russian motorcycle club known for its staunch nationalism and close ties to Vladimir Putin, is making several appearances in the Czech Republic in connection with the end-of-war celebrations. They attended a commemorative ceremony in Silesia on Friday and are expected to return to the Czech Republic on Sunday.
The Russian bikers’ presence in the country is highly controversial. They claim they are paying homage to Red Army soldiers who died liberating Czechoslovakia, but critics see their rides as politically provocative and Russian propaganda.
