Poles protest president's plane crash outside Russian Embassy

PROTESTERS have set fire to an effigy of Russia's Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, claiming the 2010 plane crash in Russia in which Polish President Lech Kaczynski and 95 others died was an assassination.

Supporters of Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the dead president's twin brother, rallied in front of the Russian Embassy in Warsaw today (yesterday local time) - the eve of the anniversary of the April 10, 2010, crash.

They said they do not believe the crash was an accident, as probes by Russian aviation authorities and Poland's government commission have concluded.

Kaczynski, the leader of the opposition nationalist Law and Justice party, has been fuelling assassination theories.

His backers also protested in front of Prime Minister Donald Tusk's and President Bronislaw Komorowski's offices.
