International motorcycle rally pays tribute to WWII victims at Brest Fortress

From Moscow to Berlin. Belarus met members of the international motorcycle rally. Bikers are planning to drive a total of six thousand kilometers dedicating this trip to the Great Victory.

They are repeating the winning ways of the Red Army and traditionally visit memorials, memorial sites and burial of the dead soldiers. About two dozen motorcyclists came to Belarus from Moscow and were joined by Belarusian bikers.

All together they went to the city of Brest. It is in the Brest Fortress where Belarus started to fight Nazi invaders.

Andrei Bobrovsky, member of motorcycle rally (Russia):
Brest Fortress has a sacred significance, I think. That is, this is the place where the Great Patriotic War began when the Nazi Germany attacked the Soviet Union. This place has great value for future generations since the feat of the people who defended the Brest Fortress should not be forgotten.

There is still a long way to go.

The bikers Victory Day plan to meet in Berlin. This city will be the end point of motorcycle rally "Roads of Victory."

Pavel Vetkin, participant (Russia):
My personal motive is simple. This is the greatest grief all over the world and also a great victory for the whole world. Since my childhood, I have been dreaming about visiting monuments set to all people. Not particularly to Soviet soldiers or Polish, but just to all people.
