    On 24 April 2015, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland presented the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Warsaw with a diplomatic note about the refusal to grant entry into Poland to an organized biker group that included members of the Night Wolves club.

    The entry was refused due to the lack of required precise information about the schedule of the group’s stay in Poland, its exact routes through the country, and accommodation of club members. The data were necessary to ensure the safety of people taking part in the tour, and the appropriate organization of the event.

     

    In addition, the Russian side’s notes about the ride came in too late at the Polish MFA, i.e. less than a week prior to the planned beginning of the tour. Poland agreed to requests for all the other events staged by the Russian side to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War Two – the Re-enactment Group Rally, the Veterans’ Rally, and the rally of bikers organized as part of the Kaliningrad Oblast’s delegation to Braniewo.
