Pro-Putin bikers' WWII victory ride a 'provocation': Poland

Night Wolves leader Alexander Zaldostanov -- aka Surgeon -- rides a motorbike during a 2014 parade through MoscowPoland’s prime minister on Wednesday criticised a fiercely nationalistic Russian biker gang’s plans to ride through Europe to celebrate the Soviet Union’s victory over Nazi Germany in World War II. The two-week 6,000-kilometre (3,750-mile) rally by Russian bikers including the Night Wolves, a motorcycle club backed by Russian President Vladimir Putin, comes as tensions run high between Russia and the West over the crisis in Ukraine. Night Wolves’ leader Alexander Zaldostanov is under US and Canadian sanctions for his support of Moscow’s seizure of Crimea from Ukraine last year. “I consider the announcement of this rally a provocation,” Polish Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz told the private TOK FM radio station.
