Censor.NET reports citing Ukrinform.

"The Russian motorbike gang Night Wolves (Nochnye Volki) is set to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II in Berlin. The gang wants once again, 70 years after the war, to symbolically conquer free Berlin, free Warsaw, Prague, Bratislava. They want to ostentatiously pass through Ukraine, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria to reach the Germany's capital... Therefore we call upon relevant authorities, ministries of foreign affairs, interior and self-governments in Ukraine, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, Austria and Germany, not to allow official or unofficial entry of the motorbike gang Night Wolves on their territories and not to permit them any public gatherings on the occasion of celebration of victory over fascism and Nazism, " Juraj Mesík, one of the petition initiators, said.

"Let us not have any illusions! The message of the bikers gang Night Wolves is not celebration over the defeat of fascism, regained freedom and piece, but support of Russia's expansion beyond its borders. Night Wolves spread hatred against Ukraine, and they are one of the pillars of anti-Ukrainian efforts in Russia. The gang moves outside the framework of free democratic societies. It intimidates people, spreads hatred, fear and violence. Therefore it is right to ask to apply the sanctions against them, to ban them from free movement in the EU," the statement, signed by more than 80 Slovak intellectual, reads.
