Russian Foreign Ministry - Poland in the case of Tu-154: Stop demonizing Russia
В Russian Foreign Minister they note that they were bewildered by the claims of the Polish side about the so-called “re-investigation of the catastrophe”.
From the message of the Department of Public Relations of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia:
In other words, the Polish side is misleading above all its own citizens. In fact, the contacts of the Russian and Polish colleagues dealing with the crash of the Tu-154 near Smolensk are not curtailed, as Poland is trying to exhibit. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia notes that Poland, in any actions of Russia, is trying to carry out attempts at demonization and to hang up loud accusations of incompetence and sabotage.
Russian Foreign Ministry:
At the same time, the Polish and Russian side cannot agree on the transfer of the wreckage of the airliner crashed in 2010 to Warsaw. The main reason is connected with the fact that every time the Polish authorities try to cast doubt on the conclusions of the investigation, which were previously approved, including by representatives of the Polish investigation team.
Recall that earlier the investigation had come to the unequivocal conclusion that bad weather conditions caused the crash of the Polish side and an attempt to land the plane at the Smolensk Severny airfield, despite calls from dispatchers for the need to leave for the alternate airfield. It was found that in the cockpit was an unauthorized person (commander in chief of the Air Force) intoxicated, which gave the command to the pilots to land in Smolensk.
