Wolves In Sheep's Clothing? Putin's Biker Pals Set Up Military-Style Camp In Slovakia

With the 50th anniversary of the Warsaw Pact invasion to rein in then-Czechoslovakia quickly approaching, one of the Kremlin's boldest advocacy groups has set up a military-style "camp" outside the capital of NATO member Slovakia.

The Night Wolves motorcycle club, whose members were at the vanguard of Russia's occupation of Crimea and nicknamed "Putin's Angels" by the media, has taken residence at a former military base in Dolna Krupa, about 60 kilometers northeast of Bratislava.

The move by the club, known for promoting Russian nationalism, hatred of gays and feminists, and allegiance to the Kremlin, appears aimed at revealing a dark, anti-Western side of the European Union member, which has sizable far-right and Russophile elements.

The group, which has been hit with sanctions from the West over its support for pro-Russia separatists in eastern Ukraine, was established in Slovakia last month.

(vid-photo gallery) --- This weekend's Friday the 13th motorcycle rally has lived up to expectations and is possibly the largest in the event's 37-year history.

PORT DOVER – This weekend’s Friday the 13th motorcycle rally has lived up to expectations and is possibly the largest in the event’s 37-year history.

“Right now it’s 12 noon and our crowd estimate is at 140,000,” said Const. Ed Sanchuk, spokesperson for the Norfolk OPP.

Previous rallies have approached 120,000 but authorities have never before gone on record with 140,000. And it is not at all clear that attendance had peaked at the time of the interview.

Indeed, at 1 p.m. Friday, authorities closed a section of the downtown to all traffic — including motorcycles — due to the crush of humanity.

Pro-Putin bikers set up 'European branch' in Slovakia

The pro-Kremlin Night Wolves bikers have set up a "European branch" just northeast of the Slovak capital Bratislava, triggering concern in the EU and NATO member.

Fiercely loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin, the bikers cross Europe each year to celebrate the anniversary of the Soviet World War II victory on May 9.

Ex-Communist countries in central Europe that are now EU and NATO members see the journeys as a provocation, with some banning the bikers from their territories.

"The European branch of the 'Night Wolves' bikers' club opened in Dolna Krupa on June 23," the Russian embassy in Slovakia said Tuesday.

An embassy representative attended the opening, it added without providing further details.
