On May 4, the BPF’s leader Alexey Yanukevich sent a letter to Belorussia’s Prosecutor General demanding that the Night Wolves, a Russian motorcycle club, be recognized an extremist organization, reports the party’s press-service.
“Pursuant to the law ‘On Countering Extremism’, the BPF’s leader urges the Prosecutor General to file a motion with the Supreme Court seeking to recognize the Night Wolves an extremist organization and ban its operation in Belarus,” says a statement posted on the website of the party’s press service.
While being in Belarus on April 30, Alexander Zaldostanov, leader of the Night Wolves, said that ‘Belorussia is part of Russia’, a statement which prompted the BPF’s harsh response.
According to Alexey Yanukevich, Zaldostanov’s statement ‘obviously disrespects independence of the Republic of Belorussia, is aimed at undermining our country’s territorial integrity and may lay an ideological foundation for preparing a hybrid war against Belorussia’.
“Belorussia’s anti-extremism laws, which have recently been considerably upgraded, are aimed at addressing precisely these threats and urges,” says Yanukevich.
On May 1, activists of Belorussia’s For Freedom movement put up posters on bridges in the Baranovichsky district protesting the upcoming arrival of the pro-Kremlin bikers in Belarus.
Russian bikers from the Night Wolves club are currently on a tour from Moscow to Berlin commemorating the end of WWII.
