How Poland Russian bikers scared
The 70th anniversary of the victory of our country in the Great Patriotic War is approaching. The holiday, which in theory should unite the peoples who fought against Nazism. A holiday that should be celebrated equally widely around the world. But it turns out that the West began to actively revise the outcome of this war, arrogate to itself the key role in the victory over Nazism and downplay the role of the Soviet Union.
There are many proofs of this, starting with statements by the Prime Minister of Ukraine Yatsenyuk, the Polish Foreign Ministry Schetina and ending with the action of the Night Wolves bike club. I want to dwell on the latter in more detail. "Night wolves" in honor of the 70th anniversary of the Great Victory are going to hold a motorcycle race, which is scheduled to begin on April 25 in Moscow and end on May 9 in Berlin. The route will also pass through Minsk, Brest, Wroclaw, Brno, Bratislava, Vienna, Munich and Prague.
Since the route must pass through the territory of Poland, Warsaw was concerned. Earlier, Polish Prime Minister Eva Kopach and Foreign Minister of the country Grzegorz Schetyna described the planned Night Wolves motorcycle race through Poland as a “provocation”.What could be a provocation? It seems that the leadership of Poland thinks that motorcyclists will not ride bikes, but on tanks and with weapons. Later, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland found a new explanation for the reason for the refusal - the lack of accurate information about the routes of travel and overnight stays of the protesters. Although, as I see it, this decision is not without political overtones.
I want to draw attention to one more moment. With a negative idea, the Night Volkov met not only the leadership of Poland, but also the opposition of Belarus, one of whose active representatives said, "dozens of Belarusians are ready to physically meet" Russian bikers. But for some reason, the aggressors are always considered Russian. In general, it is not normal to threaten physical violence to participants of a memorable rally. It seems that for the Belarusian opposition the victory over Nazism means nothing. Although, why the feeling? Perhaps it is.
I am glad that only a minority see some political overtones in the action of the Night Wolves. If ordinary people do not support Russian bikers, then at least the words will not speak badly in their address. But there are those who support.The leader of Polish motorcyclists Viktor Vagrzhin, for example, is ready with Polish bikers to ensure the safe passage of Russian motorcyclists in Poland. And in the press center of the Night Wolves motor club, they have already said that despite all the bans, the action will take place.
As for the leadership of Poland and all elements ready to stop any memorable actions in honor of the 70th anniversary of victory - they thus compromise themselves and betray the memory of their compatriots who fought hand in hand alongside the Red Army for the liberation of Nazism from Poland and all of Europe .
