The Russian Foreign Ministry commented on the decision of the Polish authorities to stop the participants of the “Victory Roads” motocross from entering Poland.

“We are indignant with the attitude of the Polish authorities towards our participants of humanitarian actions in honor of the Great Victory, we are waiting for intelligible explanations, we reserve the right to adequate response measures,” the ministry said.

It is noted that the Polish authorities refused to let pass seven Russian motorcyclists heading from the Kaliningrad region to the city of Branevo to attend traditional commemorative events on the 72nd anniversary of the Victory in the largest cemetery of Soviet soldiers of the World War II period in Europe.

The Foreign Ministry stressed that both the ceremony in Branevo and the international motor race “Victory Roads” have been held in Poland for several years, and its members have never admitted any kind of violation of public order.

Earlier, the Russian embassy in Poland expressed bewilderment at the detention of Russian bikers in the country.
