The plane, an aging Tupolev 154, flying from Moscow to Smolensk clipped treetops, fell to the ground, caught fire and disintegrated, Smolensk regional governor Sergei Antufiev told Russian TV,  adding that  none of the people onboard had survived the crash.

“As it was preparing for landing, the Polish president’s aircraft did not make it to the landing strip,” he said.

“According to preliminary reports, it got caught up in the tops of trees, fell to the ground and broke up into pieces. There are no survivors in that crash.

“We are clarifying how many people there were in the [Polish] delegation. According to preliminary reports, 85 members of the delegation and the crew.”

“The plane caught fire after the crash. Teams began attempting to pull out passengers from the badly damaged airplane,”  according to Polish Foreign Ministry in Warsaw.

According to various reports, citing the Polish Foreign Ministry,  the president was accompanied by his wife, Polish Army Chief of Staff General Franciszek Gagor, the country’s central bank governor Slawomir Skrzypek and dozens of senior officials and top military brass.

“The mobile phones of everyone who was with the President are no longer working, according to officials.” Pravda reported.

Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk said the plane crash was “the most tragic event of the country’s post-war history.”

“Mr Kaczynski has been a controversial figure in Polish politics, advocating a right-wing Catholic agenda.” BBC reported.

A political commentator, who wishes to remain anonymous, said to Fire-Earth Moderators, noting that the crash had been caused by pilot error: “Ironically, if  anyone wanted to stage a coup in Poland, they would have had to remove exactly the same set of people who were killed in the air crash.”

    A little insight from Poland:
    1) Kaczynski and his lot (also died in crash) was the major obstacle in improving relations between Russia and Poland
    2) Good polish – russian relations are very important to the whole EU (Poland is a transit country between Russia and Germany to all goods, including gas) and to Poland of course.
    3) This crash will be very benefitial to the whole UE, Russia and finaly Poland and Poles.
    4) 4 months ago plane was thoroughtly renewed in Russia. Who knows what device could have been secretly installed
    This is a very good material for conspiracy theory. The only thing is that the pilot could avoid it so easly… If this crash is not a result of come kind of conspiracy, Poland was for once in history just very very lucky.

      It’s highly unlikely that
      (i) the Russians would have done this, and
      (ii) they would do such thing in their own territory.

      “4 months ago plane was thoroughly renewed in Russia. Who knows what device could have been secretly installed”

      If that were the case, you would have thought they’d bring the plane down somewhere in Poland, and NOT in Russia.

      “If this crash is not a result of come kind of conspiracy, Poland was for once in history just very very lucky.”

      The world would be a better place without a number of incumbent/former heads of states who are still alive.

      Unfortunately, Poland is expendable. Historically, it’s always been. As the global energy [and materials] noose tightens, Poland, most of the eastern European countries, should expect to be among the first victims asphyxiating.
