Of the 150 announced Russian bikers, just 15 rolled to Berlin yesterday – and with a delay too. Immediately after the national border, they were greeted at around 3 p.m. with a police vehicle check. Two vehicles were confiscated.

Who are the night wolves?

The “Nochnye Volki” (Night Wolves) are considered Putin’s motorcycle gang – with close ties to the Kremlin. 18 of the feared rockers arrived in the capital on Thursday with twelve motorcycles and one car from Saxony. First they stopped at the Soviet War Memorial in Treptower Park, then they rolled in the direction of Tiergarten.

Commemorative events in Berlin

The end of the Second World War in Europe 77 years ago was commemorated with the laying of wreaths and rallies in Berlin. Russian Ambassador Sergei J. Nechayev laid wreaths at the Soviet memorials in Treptower Park and near the Brandenburg Gate on Monday. Hundreds of people took part in the various commemorative events, and in the afternoon the operations management spoke of a quiet course up to that point. According to the authorities, around 1800 police officers were out and about in the city area.

On May 9th, Russia traditionally celebrates the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany. In Germany, May 8th is the day of remembrance, and the Ukrainians’ commemorative events in the capital also focused on this day. Ambassador Andriy Melnyk and veterans of the Ukrainian army had already visited the memorial at the Brandenburg Gate on Sunday.
