On Saturday, border guard officers in Druskininkai (Lithuania) denied entry to three Russian bikers, Delfi.lt reported. According to the edition, they didn’t have documents justifying their purpose or the conditions of their intended stay in the Schengen country. As it turned out later, these Russian citizens attempted to make their way from Belarus to Poland. However, Polish border guard officers have denied entry to them as well.
This was the third time in a week that Lithuanian border guards had denied entry to Russian citizens on motorbikes. Earlier, motorcyclists from the Russian Night Wolves club who had previously been denied entry to Poland entered the European Union. On Tuesday, they arrived in Slovakia. On Sunday, bikers from the Russian Night Wolves club failed to cross the Belarusian-Polish border.
The Border Guard of Poland explained its decision to deny entry to the bikers as they posed a threat to the security of the Republic. Earlier, the Polish Foreign Ministry confirmed the ban.
