Russian car rally marking end of World War II pays homage to Soviet troops fallen in Poland

Some 50 members of the Russian "Road of Glory" car rally marking Soviet victory over the Nazis 70 years ago have honored Soviet soldiers who fell in combat in Warsaw in 1945.

Flying national flags and wearing dark uniforms, the Russian and Belarusian drivers are passing through Poland on a journey from Moscow to Torgau, Germany, where Soviet, British and U.S. troops met in April 1945, shortly before the surrender of Nazi Germany.

The group stopped Wednesday morning at the Red Army cemetery, in a park in Warsaw. They said prayers, laid wreaths and red carnations and resumed their journey.

They will be followed next week by a group of Russian bikers, including the pro-Kremlin "Night Wolves," whose ride is seen by some Poles as a provocation.
