General Motacki also thanked the participants of the rally: "Thank you
very much for your participation, for what you are doing. I am not
saying this because of my position and my rank, but above all as a
veteran of the mission in Iraq and Afghanistan. I am saying this as one
of you. This rally is great thing. I wish you good weather conditions
and a good road".
