The Night Wolves, Russia's oldest Motorcycle gang, which has ties to President Vladimir Putin, have announced plans to commemorate the end seventieth end of the Second World War by riding across Poland, stopping at various War Memorials, before ending their trip in Berlin.

Poles are, understandably, rather upset about this, with thousands signing a petition asking the foreign minister to bar the riders entry to the country.

The group previously organized a ride through Russian speaking parts of Ukraine, to Crimea to deliver supplies to Pro-Russian forces there.
