As 'Night Wolves', the biker gang from Russia established its base in Slovakia, the government expressed concerns over this fact. Premier Andrej Kiska and the Foreign Ministry claimed that the 'Wolves' 'create malevolent influence and spread opinions aimed at changing history'.

According to BBC, the base 'has old military vehicles and lies in Dolna Krupa, a village 70km (44 miles) from the capital Bratislava. The Russian government calls it the Night Wolves' "European headquarters".

Petr Susko, the Foreign Ministry's spokesman reminded that the bikers resort to controversial expressions, such as 'Crimea was, is and will remain Russian', 'Stalin was a great hero', 'NATO is a criminal organization' et cetera.

The Night Wolves fell under the sanctions of the U.S. and Canada due to the military assistance for Russian militants in Donbas. The bikers are being funded by the Kremlin; Russian president Putin and the gang's leader Surgeon were seen together many times - specifically, at a biker festival in Novorossiysk.
